SO: To Speak 2018 is an offshoot of Southampton’s main SO: To Speak Festival, 2nd – 4th November.

SO:Write is a two-year literature development initiative managed by ArtfulScribe and generously funded by Arts Council England with support from Apples and Snakes, ArtfulScribe, John Hansard Gallery, Mayflower Theatre, Southampton Libraries, Southampton Cultural Development Trust, Nuffield Southampton Theatres, and University of Southampton.

The weekend-long programme is a celebration of literature in the city.

The full programme is available here.

If you are interested in attending the Engagement Symposium on 2nd November but might find cost a barrier, enter NOBARRIERS at the NST box office for free entry to the event.
