"New Writing South is the pre-eminent creative writing hub in south-east England, dedicated to inspiring, nurturing and connecting all kinds of excellent creative writers. Our community of writers embraces those who are professional, mid-career, emerging or just starting out; and includes authors, playwrights, poets, radio dramatists, bloggers, screenwriters and more.
We seek out talent, encourage ambition and support writers with workshops, feedback, mentoring schemes, bursaries, advice and networking opportunities to provide creative and career development, promotion and employment.
Our work in schools, places of work and in all kinds of communities inspires imaginations, encourages creative thinking and gets both young people and adults writing with vigour and enthusiasm.
We reach live audiences across the region with live literature events, debates, rehearsed readings, author events and our annual New Writing South lecture."
