The Latitude Festival (18th – 21st July 2013) has teamed up with our international bestselling YA author C.J. Daugherty to give young people the chance to achieve a nationally recognised Arts Award qualification. They are the first festival to become an Arts Award supporter organisation.
C.J. Daugherty, author of the Night School series, will be talking about her career as a YA author, reading an exclusive extract from her new novel Fracture (published by Atom in August), running a story writing workshop, and taking part in a special event with 10 lucky Arts Award participants. In addition, Arts Awards participants will also have the chance to meet two other YA authors: Dawn O’Porter who will be talking about her new book Paper Aeroplanes, and horror writer Alexander Gordon Smith, author of the popular Furnace series.
As winner of Best Family Festival 2012 and with its huge range of arts on offer, Latitude is the perfect place for teens and young people to access the arts and use their festival experience to receive their Arts Award qualification, awarded by Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England.
