Welcome to the Dare To Write? Atlas, where writers of all ages, backgrounds, and levels of experience can find and connect with writing communities.

From one-off events to lifelong writing support, use the Atlas to turn your solo writing journey into a network.

Writing Destinations
Networks of people are a great way to ensure that everyone is supported as they improve their writing. That’s why we’re working with locations across the South West to turn them into Writing Destinations, places where whole communities come together to support writing on every level and for any age or ability. Head to Bath or Corsham to see how these communities are coming together to celebrate writing, or the about page for more detail about the concept.
What's On

Our events calendars make accessing creative writing events simple. Find out what’s on in Bath or Corsham. Or go to our national calendar for Young People or Adults.

Does your area have an active writing community? Get in touch if you would like us to create a What’s On page for your area or if you have an event you would like to put on the calendar.
