“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.

Time to Write

We have now awarded our Time to Write commissions to break down barriers to writing. Over the coming months, this fantastic range of people will nurture each other to create writing in a multitude of genres and on a plethora of topics. Head to our feature page to find out more.

AI Story Lab

With guidance from pioneers of the industry, our selected writers will learn, create, and collaborate on a new world of storytelling at the forefront of interactive technology. It’s immersive, it’s non-linear and it’s the future. Find out more on our feature page.
