Research emerging from the creative writing incubator, Papers Nations, has shown that Writing Destinations help to:

  • Increase enjoyment in writing, language and telling stories.
  • Improve creativity and wellbeing for local people.
  • Strengthen relationships within the local community.
  • Create more opportunities and participation in writing at the local level.
  • Help those who write the least to write more often.
  • Attract visitors and new businesses to the area.
  • Bring extra investment and income into the whole community.
