Regional Editor Network

Regional Editor NetworkThe Regional Editors’ Network is a means by which aspiring journalists from disadvantaged backgrounds can be equipped with the skills, tools and resources to enter the media industry and start their own journalism outlets. Through mentoring with experienced journalists, along with workshops and online support, the network can empower those from traditionally excluded backgrounds to convey their stories and create avenues in which they can be heard. The project will address the lack of diversity and plurality in the British media, whilst creating opportunities to a new generation of journalists.


Creative Writing Workshops

Creative Writing WorkshopsWe deliver creative writing workshops in places of exclusion and disadvantage - including within prisons and inner city areas with multiple levels of deprivation.

We can also deliver creative writing workshops for organisations, helping them to create a piece of collective work by their employees. At the same time, organisations can sponsor a placement for a disadvantaged person on the same workshop programme - thereby giving them access to the same opportunities it brings.
