 New Writing North is funded to develop reading and writing activity in the North of England. Most of our projects are focused on the North East of England where we are based. Since 2012 Arts Council England has funded New Writing North to expand a number areas of our work into the wider North area (the North West and Yorkshire and Humberside). In 2013 two of our core projects, The Northern Writers’ Awards and Read Regional, expanded to open out to other areas in the North.
