Viol workshop

try viols of different sizes and play through a late 16th Century
set work by Holborne on instruments that might have been
used four centuries ago.

t HAS been said that writing is a craft that needs to be
exercised, and even more so for those wanting to go into
the industry of journalism. the opportunity to write for
Enfield’s youth magazine Delirium came around through YAVE
(Youth Action Volunteering Enfield), in the form of a chance
both to make a contribution to our local youth culture and
give us the vital experience needed to make an entrance into
the world of writing and journalism.
Having just come out of an extraordinary summer of sport,
it felt as if there were an abundance of things to write about.
We both first went to the sessions with the intention of
simply writing a few pieces, but left not only as published
writers, but as writers with experience in design, editing and
photography. We learnt new skills and were encouraged to
pursue our goals further with a greater knowledge of
publishing and ideas from other people our age. YAVE runs
two magazine programmes a year, one in the summer and
one in winter – information can be found through the local
We loved the experience as it was a challenging and
enjoyable learning curve, and would recommend it strongly
to anybody considering a career in journalism, publishing and
the media, or with just a passion for writing.
