Join The Writers’ Academy

The Academy is designed to profile literary talent across the South West where writers have achieved success in their chosen field and are interested in paid opportunities to mentor fellow writers, to teach literature courses and to advocate for literature in the region through appearances at literary events.

By applying to join the Writers’ Academy here you are agreeing that Literature Works may occasionally contact you about such opportunities and other news for writers in the region.

You can find out more about our eligibility criteria here.

Here you can tell us a bit about your writing and your writing life. Please note that we verify all entries before publication and reserve the right to edit applications to fit our house style (max. 500 characters).
