YA authors team up with Latitude Festival to help young people achieve their Arts Award qualification

Latitude Festival has teamed up with a number of YA author’s including CJ Daugherty in order to give young people the chance to achieve a nationally recognised Arts Award qualification, as part of their role as the first festival to become an Arts Award supporter organisation.

As winner of Best Family Festival 2012 and with its huge range of arts on offer, as well as dedicated areas for both Children and Teens, 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.

The internationally bestselling YA author CJ Daugherty, author of the popular Night School series, will be talking about the career of a YA author, reading an exclusive extract from her new novel Fracture (due to be published by Atom in August) as well as 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.
