Today we’re happy to reveal the talented writing facilitators who have been chosen as part of our Writing Producers’ Scheme.
The Writing Producers’ Scheme is designed to support this talented pool of producers to create, expand, and sustain writing initiatives which will have lasting effect in the writing ecology of the upper South West region.
‘This is a fantastic opportunity for us at Paper Nations to do what we do best and support the development of writers and writing in the upper South West. We are excited by our selection and recognise that these individuals are as passionate as we are about producing quality writing initiatives in the region. We can’t wait to see their writing projects flourish and how they will continue to support their writing communities.’
Amy Spencer, Creative Producer, Paper Nations
The scheme includes tailored support for the eleven selected writing producers in a nurturing and professional environment. It also includes regular coaching sessions with Professor Bambo Soyinka, the Executive Development Producer at Paper Nations. Mentoring began last month and will continue into September 2020.
Read what some of the writers have already had to say about the scheme…
‘I am loving being part of a writer facilitator community and growing my writer connections. I have appreciated being included in awesome Crowdcast and Zoom sessions. The mentor sessions with Bambo have been direct and hugely useful to me as a Writing Producer. I am reading, researching and writing more. It has focused my work and developed my practice as an Arts Practitioner and writer. Thank you.’
Marnie Forbes Eldridge, Prime Theatre Company
‘Being selected for the Paper Nations’ Writing Producers’ Programme has been a great boost for my confidence and the programme has already been helpful after only one session. I already have lots of ideas for my business going forward and I can’t wait to develop them with the support of Paper Nations.’
