Writing East Midlands is the writer development agency for the East Midlands. We support and advocate writing in the region, create opportunities for writers and discover new writers of quality. We advocate for investment in the literature sector to create an environment in which writers and writing can flourish.
We are developing services appropriate for writers at different stages in their careers. We facilitate new commissions, projects, residencies, and publications, and we also support appropriate live events.
Mostly, we work in partnership with a broad range of cultural organisations such as literature development officers, local authorities, regional development agencies, universities, schools, arts venues, museums, libraries, and producers. Through these partnerships we encourage relationships between writers and the region’s communities, and we put writers in touch with each other.
