We believe writing has the power to change lives. We support readers and writers by working in schools across the county, nurturing the next generation of writers and inspiring communities through world-class events in the city and further afield.
As a UK registered charity, we rely on the generosity of our supporters to make our work possible. Please consider making a gift to ensure that the life-changing power of creative writing, books and reading continues to influence and inspire generations to come.
We have three memberships that not only help us continue doing our work, but also give you some great benefits.
