An engine for creative reading and writing

New Writing North is the writing development agency for the North of England. We are based in Newcastle upon Tyne, from where we have produced nationally significant work since 1996.

We bring people together through books and writing. We create career-changing opportunities for writers and we find and support talented people from all backgrounds to achieve their creative ambitions.


We build the narrative power of young people and communities, and we platform the work of those whose voices are missing from the mainstream conversation.

Writing is powerful. It can change the way we explore the world, understand ourselves and connect with one another. Writers craft the stories that shape us.
