The Writing Squad

We are creating the next generation of writers in the North through workshops, 1-1 support and investment for writers and literature activists aged 16-21. We are a writer development programme and a community of artists who make new work together and support each other's development. We continue to offer our writers and activists professional development as they begin their careers. Our groups meet in Manchester, Sheffield and Newcastle, our 1-1s take place in cafes, libraries and bookshops all over the north.

To celebrate the launch, The Writing Squad are collaborating with Fictions of Every Kind and the Poetry Business on the event at Wharf Chambers on Tuesday 3 June, 7.30pm
