READ ON is a four-year project bringing together seven organisations in six countries working in six languages, funded by the EU Creative Europe programme.

Writing West Midlands is the UK partner. There is more information on what we’re running as part of READ ON on the Spark Young Writers website.

From June 2017 to December 2021, the seven partner organisations are working with young people aged 12-19 at public events, through their schools, youth groups and writing clubs, or by themselves.

The READ ON project gets young people reading, writing, illustrating, creating graphic novels, interviewing authors, offering their own spin on their favourite book, and curating events at literature festivals, both in their own country and across Europe.

You can find out much more about each of the activities we’re running as part of READ ON with the READ ON Guide, published June 2020:
