Developing Writers

Word Space 2024-25 open briefings

13th November 2023

If you’re based in South West England and you’re serious about your writing; if you’re ready for a year of mentoring, support and connection – then Word Space is the thing for you. It’s our online annual talent development programme, running for twelve months from April 2024 – March 2025 and developing a group of emerging writers from across the South West.

Word Space is for developing practitioners who are serious about their work and ready to take it to the next level. It will be open for submissions throughout December 2023 and January 2024, through an open call.

To find out more about applying, why not join one of two free online briefing sessions? The Literature Works team will be available to answer your questions about the application process and the wider programme. There are two dates to choose from:

  • Tuesday 28th November 2023, 1-2 pm (fully booked)
  • Tuesday 16th January 2024, 1-2 pm
