Write Here!

Our Write Here residencies team up writers with venues and organisations to nurture and develop creative talent.

Write Here is Writing East Midlands’ Writer in Residence Programme. Since 2009 we have placed writers in all the major cities and towns in the East Midlands. We’ve worked with primary and secondary schools, as well as with a range of organisations and institutions including Nottingham Contemporary, HMP Sudbury and New Walk Museum Leicester. In schools our writing projects help children and young people to discover their creative skills. The value of Write Here residencies can’t be overstated, both for the local communities and audiences and for the writers in place.

We are always interested in developing new ideas for writer residencies with partners and can assist with fundraising support, sourcing and contracting appropriately skilled and experienced writers, and project management. More and more frequently, we are delivering Arts Award through Write Here residencies. If you work in a community or school setting and are interested in developing a Writer Residency, or if you are a writer looking to expand your experience in the community, please contact us at to explore ways in which we can work together.
