Outsider Writers exists to give voice to the unheard. Their vision is to show that people side-lined from society can write, perform and create work at the highest level. They support the outsider community to push boundaries to prove they can create work of outstanding quality and worth.
The project has received funding for its ‘Lock In’ activity, continuing the work they have been doing throughout lockdown to showcase the work of the writers they support.
Speaking about what the grant means for the project, Nell Leyshon said:
“This funding from Literature Works means that The Outsiders Project can publish and share with the world the extraordinary writing our outsider artists have done during the global pandemic.”
