Join and Support

As a charity, we rely on the support of our community to bring stories and creative writing to all.

Rooted in Norwich and open to the world, we:

  • Nurture the next generation of creative writers and translators to discover new voices and stories.
  • Empower people of all ages to create with words; in community centres, at home, in schools, on the street and in our building.
  • Bring together writers and translators from across England, Europe and the world.
