New Writing North
New Writing North is the writing development agency for the north east of England. We are a unique organisation within the UK, merging individual development work with writers across all mediums with educational work and the production of creative projects. We work with writers to develop career opportunities, new commissions, projects, residencies, publications and live events.

New Writing North is currently working with Newcastle University to establish a new centre for writing and writers in Newcastle: The Northern Writers Centre. This exciting new development will create a new venue specifically for literature events, support writers by providing places to work and offer a range of creative writing activities to aspiring writers of all ages.

New Writing North works in partnership with a broad range of public and private organisations to produce projects and events. The organisation produces a wide range of project work from new theatre productions to large-scale community writing events and international projects. Recent notable projects include the Orange Young Writers Festival, the War & Peace Russian writers UK tour, Orange Bite Size Theatre and the Creative Centres Project in North Tyneside. We also operate regular programmes of work which enable writers to work with young people in schools.
