What is Write Now?

“After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.”
- Philip Pullman, Author

Write Now is our new writing development and engagement programme designed to support the creative practice of writers who work across all mediums of storytelling.

Our focus for 2016 is writing for children and young people and we are planning lots of exciting events throughout the year including ‘Meet the Author’ events, writing challenges and competitions as well as continuing to bring the best stories to The Berry Theatre; some new, some old, and some retold…

We are looking forward to supporting writers through our Associates Writers’ scheme and trans-media programme to encourage the development of stories using a variety of mediums and technology.   

We are also running a programme of training, networking and creative projects for libraries and schools to support children in discovering stories through reading and creative writing as part of our innovative education programme.                     

Take a look around the Write Now pages to see all that we have going on and we look forward to welcoming you to one of our Write Now events soon.
