Writing West Midlands’ passion is to encourage writers, at all stages of their writing lives. There are extraordinarily talented emerging writers in every corner of our region; crafting, drafting, re-drafting the thought-provoking narratives that will become the novels and screenplays of the next decades. We are committed to supporting talented writers, giving them the confidence to keep going and the skills to construct a living from their words.

Here are just some of the ways you can get involved with us.
