Based on Plymouth University’s campus, Literature Works is an independent charity whose mission is to enable and nurture literature development activity in the region. The team supports, understands and advocates for the regional literary sector in all its contexts, for everyone and for all ages, and works closely with the School of English and Creative Writing, Writing Café and on the National Memory Day project.
Our partnership with Literature Works benefits our students, staff and wider community in areas such as:
- attendance at the annual Writers’ Conference, this year in partnership with Writers & Artists Yearbook
- student work experience and shadowing opportunities at literature festivals, events and with our partners in publishing and creative writing industries
- opportunities for students to get involved in fundraising for literature activities and the Literature Works ‘Annual Fund’ which provides writers to work in groups of marginalised communities
- opportunities to write up reviews and interviews with writers and poets and having them published on our website.
