We’re funded by Arts Council England to support writers and creative writing in the West Midlands.

We run workshops and short courses, free networking events, performance opportunities through Birmingham Literature Festival, and the Room 204 Writer Development Programme.

Writing West Midlands’ passion is to encourage writers, at all stages of their writing lives.

There are extraordinarily talented emerging writers in every corner of our region; crafting, drafting, re-drafting the thought-provoking narratives that will become the novels and screenplays of the next decades.

We are committed to supporting talented writers, giving them the confidence to keep going and the skills to construct a living from their words.
