YOUNG people are being given a chance to get their 'teenage kicks' through arts workshops.
The workshops - entitled Teenage Kicks - will be at Huddersfield Public Library and Art Gallery on Sunday, October 10.
There will be a choice of eight workshops, with activities ranging from art and fantasy fiction to acting and music mixing.
Teenagers can choose two to take part in.
Project co-ordinator Alex Mark- ham said: "We aim to revolutionise the way young people view the library and reading events.
"Through these workshops we want to encourage them to see reading as a creative and social activity for everyone, not just the academic."
The art workshops will include sessions with graffiti artist Keith Hopwell, who is also a producer and recorder for the Ninja record label.
He will also give tips on the art of Japanese graphic novels, known as manga art.
Education official Ami Hallgarth will help teenagers to create a book of prints depicting the stories of their lives.
Writing workshops will feature award-winning author Alan Gibbons giving tips on writing ghost and horror stories.
There will be a session with Huddersfield sixth-former Cieran Roberts, showing teenagers how to write themselves into their favourite fantasy novels online.
Huddersfield children's librarian turned author Ceri Worman will explain what is involved in getting a book published.
Drama workshops will be run by actors Matt Aistrup and Dave Raynor. Music workshops will be held by performance poet Rommi Smith, musician Simon Grainger and a mixing deck.
The idea is to turn the teenager's reading experiences into song, fusing music and poetry.
Sporty types are catered for with a football quiz and penalty shootout, against football writer Tom Palmer author of If You're Proud to be a Leeds Fan.
Teenage Kicks will last from 11am to 4pm and costs £3.50 per person (lunch included). Places must be pre-booked.
