Support Writing West Midlands – Donate

Donate to Writing West Midlands: help us nurture the great young writers of tomorrow.

Support Us

We run 20 Spark Young Writers groups across the West Midlands, which reach over 400 young writers aged between 8 and 19.

The sessions are monthly, and cost £9 per 2-hour session.

With your donations, we can keep the Spark Young Writers groups at low cost, as well as offer more bursaries to children whose families can’t afford the groups.

We also run an adult writer development programme (Room 204) which adds 15 new writers to it each year. The writers apply to become part of the programme, which aims to guide writers in the early part of their career and encourage them to think widely about their writing and earning potential. They receive individual advice and group workshops as well as becoming part of a 100+ supportive cohort of writers working and living in the West Midlands.

We can also receive Gift Aid on your donation, meaning that every £1 you donate is worth £1.28, at no extra cost to you.
