Kirsty Capes – Inspiring Story of a Care Leaver

October 26 @ 5:30 am - 7:00 pm

Kirsty Capes

We are inviting all care experienced young people in Surrey aged 14-25 to attend a writing workshop with Kirsty Capes.

Kirsty Capes works in publishing and, as a Surrey care leaver, is an advocate for better representation for care-experienced people in the media. Careless is her first novel.
Kirsty will talk about her novel, her writing journey and path to publication. There will be an opportunity for you to ask Kirsty some questions. This will be followed by a writing workshop facilitated by Kirsty.

This is an incredible opportunity for any aspiring writers and avid readers, but also for young people who want to learn something new or that are simply curious to hear about Kirsty’s experiences as a care leaver, her career and successes. This event will be BSL interpreted.

To sign up please complete the linked form, and we will send you the Zoom link and details nearer the time. Signup here: forms.office.com
