We connect the world with the stories, ideas and writing that matter.

Latest News



WriteNow aims to find, mentor and publish new writers from communities under-represented on the nation’s bookshelves. We launched WriteNow in 2016 because we know that books don’t reflect everyone in our society. There are still too many stories which are not being told, and too many voices which are overlooked.

Applications for this year's programme, where we'll be hosting workshops in London, Liverpool and Nottingham, are now open - find out more here.
