Welcome to Writing West Midlands

We support creative writers and creative writing in the West Midlands region.

WRITERS:

We run workshops, conferences, residencies and networking throughout the year, as well as the creative development programme Room 204. We hold a range of writing workshops and short courses, as well as host writers from all over the globe.

 

YOUNG PEOPLE:

Through our Spark Young Writers Programme, we provide schools with writers, run 19 monthly creative writing groups across the west midlands and hold a yearly summer school (this year: 22-26 July 2019 inclusive, in Wolverhampton.)

 

READERS:

Through partnerships with publishers, universities, galleries, libraries and many others, we nurture readers as much as writers.

 

CELEBRATING WORDS:

Birmingham Literature Festival runs with a full programme in October of each year. It also holds a short run of events in April. The next festival is 3-13 October 2019.
