New Writing South (NWS) is one of seven writing development agencies in England which collectively aim to support all kinds of creative writing, providing talent development opportunities for writers and commissioning new work across the country. NWS  is particularly interested in nurturing diverse talent, offering support to writers from the South East region who would not ordinarily have access to professional development opportunities.

Our vision:

The south east of England is a place where creative writing thrives and literature is at the cultural heart of the region.

We exist to:

be a centre of excellence in nurturing diverse writing talent in the south east of England.

We do this by encouraging ambition and by supporting writers with training, mentoring and networking opportunities to provide creative and career development.
