Fighting Words invites young writers from Northern Ireland to ‘Become A Young Storykeeper’ with Great Lighthouses of Ireland – to 19 May

To celebrate Cruinniú na nÓg, Great Lighthouses of Ireland and Fighting Words are inviting 7-12 year-olds to become Young Storykeepers!

All you have to do is create a story inspired by lighthouses!

About Fighting Words NI

All our lighthouses brim with terrific tales, legends and lore about lightkeepers, shipwrecks, maritime life and much more. Today they play a vital role along with buoys and other aids to navigation in guiding the safe passage of ships. This is all managed and cared for by the Commissioners of Irish Lights.

Fighting Words offer free workshops to children to explore their creativity and create new stories at locations all over Ireland. Great Lighthouses of Ireland and Fighting Words have now come together and are looking for some imaginative minds to become Young Storykeepers!

Become A Young Storykeeper

Fighting Words NI are asking 7-12 year-olds to create an original story inspired by lighthouses. Your unique story (max length 500 words) can take any form; from short story to poem to play, or even song lyrics, a comic or illustration.

The only requirement is that your story must involve a lighthouse, a buoy or even a helper vessel like the ILV Granuaile.  

The lighthouse/buoy/vessel in your story can serve any purpose, it can be a real or fictitious setting or even a character in your tale!

Recommended age: 7-12 yrs
