Spread the Word works with London writers at all stages of their careers to help them achieve their full potential. With a focus on the writer, our workshops, one-to-one advice surgeries, mentoring schemes and other activities use established professional writers to develop writers' skills and support them in building a career in writing. We encourage new and original voices in poetry, fiction, scriptwriting and other genres. Through public performances we provide opportunities for up-and-coming and established writers to showcase their writing to live audiences. Our networking events, online meeting place and writers' days encourage a supportive community of London writers to share experiences, techniques, advice and their written work.
