The Writers Hub
Write in the Heart of the City
Run by writers, for writers, The Writers Hub has been developed to help you to fulfil your own writing ambitions. Whether you’re ten years old, or a hundred. If you haven’t picked up a pen for twenty years or if you’re on your thirtieth published novel, we’re here to support you as you take the next step on your journey. We want to be there to give you the ideas and courage to get started, to cheer you on when you feel like giving up and to pop the champagne cork when you achieve your own milestones whether those be publication, performance or just self-fulfilment.
We know that writers need peace and quiet but not isolation, that writers need time and space but to not feel cast adrift. We know that writers need a room of their own but that they also need to feel part of a community and that writers need to be around other people who have been there before and who can show them the ropes. The Writers Hub is here to provide all that and more. We want to connect you with the resources, training and people that you need in order to succeed.
