About

A little about us...

Nottingham Writers’ Studio is the only dedicated writing facility of its kind in the UK, with co-working space, courses, workshops, critique sessions, mentoring and venue hire all available within the realms of meeting other writers for networking and support.

From our city centre location in the Creative Quarter we offer workspace, advice, creative and professional support, and help writers navigate the path from aspiration, through dedication, to publication if so desired. We pride ourselves in providing opportunities for writers of all levels and abilities.

The Studio is run by a volunteer Board with a very small team of passionate, dedicated part-time staff at its core. Any and all surpluses are invested back into the organisation and our community. Our mission is to inspire, develop and bring together writers who reflect the rich diversity of our community, to support each other on their writing journeys. We exist for the benefit of supporting, educating and developing our members.

As innovative and hard-working as we are, we often find ourselves restricted with how much we can do. We're not far from being self-sufficient, but we need all the help we can get to achieve it! With more funding, we could create new ambitious ways of supporting writers, like providing residencies, commissions, developing digital content, relaunching the NWS journal, and researching new publishing methods. 



Why support us?

  • Nottingham Writers' Studio has been a part of the local creative community since 2006!
  • We've shown what we can do by initiating the successful bid for Nottingham to become a UNESCO City of Literature (it started out of NWS!)
  • We're an independent non-profit that doesn't receive public funding.
  • We currently have over one hundred writers on our membership who will directly benefit from us being able to focus on supporting their progression routes.
  • We have a vision of becoming a hub in Nottingham (and the East Midlands) for 'Words for Wellbeing' - an initiative that engagespeople with writing therapeutically to promote physical and mental wellness. 



What you're helping to support

Until we reach financial sustainability, all funds go towards our core running costs. Here's an example of our monthly outgoings each month;
  • £10 public liability insurance
  • £30 sundries (tea, coffee, teaching supplies, etc)
  • £35 subscription for our online bookkeeping system
  • £800 rent
  • £1250 staff salaries

We are so grateful for any support we receive and what it could mean for our future plans. To find out more about us, please visit our website
