For the past three years, Paper Nations has worked to inspire young people to write. Building on this success and the network of partnerships forged, we are now taking a love and passion for creative writing to people of all ages.
Our ambition is to make creative writing support accessible to everyone. But you can’t access support if you don’t know it’s there.
To help break down this barrier, we need you. Tell us about the writing resources, events, opportunities, and members of the writing community near you who enable writers to develop their craft. We’ll share them with the writing community.

Paper Nations is currently going through a transition period as we rebrand our website and prepare for the launch of this new programme of work. Our website is deliberately very minimal at the minute, and you may have noticed that we’ve gone quiet for the past few months. But, behind the scenes, we are still here and working on the following activities:
1. We’re getting ready to release our final set of case studies and reports emerging from our 2016-18 Creative Writing in Schools Programme.
After three years of hard work and collaboration with young people and writers, we have finished our Creative Writing and Schools Programme. We are now preparing for the release of our final set of resources and reports. Read on for more information about some of the resources that we are getting ready to release.
2. Thanks to a new grant from Arts Council England, we’re developing a new programme that will champion Writing for All in the South West.
In 2018, we received a grant from ACE (via the Ambition for Excellence scheme) to develop and roll out a new programme of work that will champion Writing for All across the upper regions of the South West. Since receiving this grant, we’ve been consulting with potential partners and working behind the scenes to develop our new programme. Following this period of development on July 2nd 2019, we’ll launch Season One of our new programme alongside our new Writing for All manifesto. Find out more about the preparations underway for the launch of Season One of our new programme.
3. We’re preparing for a series of briefing events and launches to celebrate our work so far and tell you more about what is coming up next.
Over the next six months, we will be running a series of briefing events and launches, beginning with a special statement from our Patron for Children’s writing, David Almond. Please follow our Twitter feed for announcements on what’s happening next or take a look at our timeline below.
