We are Little Green Pig

We are here for young writers.

Based in Brighton & Hove, we are a writing and mentoring charity for young people in Sussex. We believe in the right to write, and that this vital form of self-expression builds confidence, communication and literacy skills.

You can find us scribbling in various venues across the city.

Creativity and fun are at the heart of what we do.

Our work with schools

We work with children and young people aged 7 to 18 in schools and colleges, offering young people and teachers the chance to get out of the classroom and get playful with writing.

Out-of-school events

Whether creating Brighton's first soap opera or a murder mystery at Preston Manor, our out-of-school projects get young people writing in more ways than they ever thought possible!
