For 21 years Writing on the Wall has stayed true to our origins, giving a platform to working class writing and promoting social justice, and have extended our reach across the region and internationally. Our work has transformed lives through promoting diversity, equality and inclusion; published countless new authors and discovered lost voices; campaigned against racism, sexism, discrimination and inequality in all its forms; pushed local, national and international issues in their fight for justice and inspired local communities through creativity to address mental health, domestic abuse, women’s rights, refugees and asylum seekers, LGBTQIA+ issues, Trans rights and much, much more.

Join Writing on the Wall to celebrate 21 Years of Radical Writing from 1st-31st May – see that 21 years is not just a number. It’s what we have achieved, what we are achieving and what we will go on to achieve.
