Channel Partners Past and Present:

Channel partners are organisations who collaborate with us to provide a platform to writers, for example hosting and/or co-producing events or providing publishing opportunities. If you’d like to become a channel partner, please contact

National Association of Writers in Education

NAWE's mission is to further knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of Creative Writing and to support good practice in its teaching and learning at all levels. NAWE was one of the central partners in Paper Nations’ 2016-18 programme and is a source of continual support and expertise. In 2019-21, they will continue to feed into our research, particularly the consultation of mid-to-advanced career writers and the establishment of and research into writing networks.

Bath Festivals

Bath Festivals is a charity that brings some of the finest international musicians, speakers and writers to entertain audiences in the beautiful venues and spaces of the world heritage city of Bath. By creating innovative and diverse programmes, their festivals inspire and provide unique experiences for residents and visitors to Bath.

Bath Festivals was a key partner on the Paper Nations 2016-18 programme. Our Writing for All programme builds on this relationship.


StoryHive is a media production and publishing house that creates platforms that blend books, games and films with real-life experiences. Book Kernel is an imprint/platform of StoryHive with a focus on creating ‘living’ books. Book Kernel provides a unique ethos and approach to celebrating the ever-evolving relationship between living, speaking, writing and making books.

Since 2016, StoryHive has collaborated with Bath Spa University and Paper Nations to embed the principles of Book Kernel into the programme. Dare to Write? is one of the key results of this collaboration.

Corsham Town Council

As the heart of one of our ‘Writing Destinations’ Corsham Town Council have been an integral part of our work in the Corsham Community. With their leadership we co-produced the first annual family writing festival, Corsham StoryTown, in 2018. This relationship is only set to grow as we continue to focus on Corsham as a year-round destination for writing.
