This is where to go if you want to try a writing course. Equally suitable for those with no experience whatsoever, and those with some published work behind them. Highly recommended.
New Writing North
Working with new and established writers across the North of England. Their Northern Writers’ Awards are a fantastic way to access financial support and take a step towards publication or broadcast.
The Royal Literary Fund
Information, articles, advice and grants for writers and students.
Putting writers into schools. Donate! They’re brilliant.
The same as Arvon, only in a beautiful house in Wales.
Claire is a fabulous photographer. She took the picture on the cover of TENDER, as well as the author photograph for the book, and the one on my home page. She has an unrivalled portfolio of portraits of writers, and her more personal work is stunning too.
