Many young people dream of becoming a writer one day. At the “Brønderslev Forfatterskole” (writing school in Brønderslev), adolescents aged between 13 and 16 years can pursue this dream. Annual summer courses are held to teach young people the art and craft of writing, supported by Danish professional writers. The courses aim to bring adolescents with common interests in writing together and facilitate their exchange of experiences. In 2012, courses in Poetry Slam will also be offered.

Owing to high demand, courses are now held in two locations, i. e. in Brønderslev and on Fanø island. The writing school is mainly funded by the Ministry of Culture, Education and Social Affairs and the region of Nordjylland, the Brønderslev and the Fanø communities.
