“We write in order to celebrate and to make some sense of our astonishing world.”
“In the beginning: the Word.”
“We write to reach through time and space, to have our thoughts exist in the minds of others, to be misunderstood in ever more interesting ways.”
Writing for All
We want to make writing part of our national life - an art for everyone - and for writing and media industries to be more representative of the country as a whole. We’re doing this through our Writing For All programme, and we need your help.
Our first call goes out to digital writers with Beyond the Book, encouraging experimentation with digital writing.
