Pen to Print: Creative writing project
The purpose of the Pen to Print Project is to build on the network of support for aspiring writers in Barking and Dagenham.
It aims to identify local writing talent and provide opportunities to produce quality writing for publication.
It does this through a series of workshops and masterclasses supported by established creative writing experts and authors.
The programme is funded for one year and has these elements:
- The Book Challenge
- The Poetry and Short Story Competition
- Competition for Young Writers
- Playwriting Competition – New for 2017
In addition to the main competition elements, there will be a series of on-going author events and workshops during the Pen to Print scheme.
These events will be open to all residents and are aimed at inspiring and encouraging aspiring writers, as well as providing entertainment to the wider reading public.
The Pen to Print; Real People Real Stories Project has been made possible with funding from the Arts Council.
