WILL YOU BE OUR NEXT SUCCESS STORY?
APPLICATIONS FOR 2024 OPENING SOON!
DO YOU WANT TO WRITE A NOVEL?
We'd like to help.
Writers’ Block North East (WBNE) is a creative writing development service. We are based in Middlesbrough and we are passionate about writers and writing.
Each year we coach, teach and mentor 12 writers who want to write a novel. We support them throughout the creation of a first draft, and then we introduce them to top literary agents. It's that simple. And it's very effective.
As a direct result of our programme eight of our writers have been made offers by prominent agents since 2018, and to date four of our writers have been published.
We have been inspiring and supporting grassroots writing talent on Teesside since 2010. We have facilitated the production of over 400 new pieces of work including plays, short films, radio dramas, zines, short stories, screenplays and novels. Like you, we do it because we love it.
We are here to help you tell your story.
Writers’ Block North East is an encouraging space for writers – and jampacked with exciting new talent!
