Support local writing

Nottingham Writers’ Studio­­­ is a unique community of writers in the heart of Nottingham, a UNESCO City of Literature. Since its inception, Nottingham Writers’ Studio has helped hundreds of writers to find their voices and discover their path to publication.

But running a community for so long isn’t easy, and it isn’t cheap. Funding for creative organisations is reducing year on year and this is having a major impact. We want to be able to inspire future generations of writers, or nurture those who want to write but are scared to find their voices.

With your help, we can keep growing. We can keep inspiring. We can reach more writers than ever through our platforms for emerging writers, published writers, and even international writers.

Whoever you are, and wherever you are, your donation helps to nurture the next generation of writing talent. The future voices not just of Nottingham, but of the world, are in your hands.

Members' social: Is self-publishing for you?

Saturday 31 March, 7pm-9pm

So you’ve written a book.

Now what?

Technology has made it easier than ever for writers to share their work with the world. But is it really as easy as it looks? And is self-publishing the right path for you?

This event is free for members and £3 on the door for non-members.
