Writing West Midlands secures NPO funding til 2022

We’re delighted that we’ve had our Arts Council England NPO (National Portfolio Organisation) funding renewed for the next round, which secures our work through to April 2022.

This will allow us to continue our work with writers, young writers and readers across the West Midlands region, as well as develop further opportunities locally and further afield. It also secures the future of the Birmingham Literature Festival.

Peter Knott, Area Director, Arts Council England said:

“Writing West Midlands specialises in getting people of all ages inspired by the written word, helping them to develop their own creative skills or simply enjoy the writing talent of others. We’re proud to be funding Writing West Midlands over the next four years and look forward to seeing literary engagement in the community go from strength to strength.”
