A range of resources and facilities aimed at promoting writing for all ages and abilities within the community.
Run by writers with over thirty years experience of work in the community, the Project provides opportunities for writers to train and work within the community and workshops and information sessions to encourage and assist teachers, librarians and others
working in play or community.
It provides advice and guest writers to a variety of writers’ groups and runs open advice sessions in libraries. It also provides advice by post and phone to a large number of individual enquiries.
