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.



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 4-14 October 2018.
