Case Studies

Since 2011, we've worked to help writers develop and build their confidence. We have done this by facilitating writing for publication, and for those who work with us, to take part in open mics, festivals, and touring shows in the UK. Don't miss the exciting workshops and events we have to offer, by signing up to our newsletter - our promise is to only send you informative, and useful content. Alternatively, find out how we can help you by visiting our Staff page, where you can find our contact details, or take a look at writers who've shared some steps on their journey with us.
