Information on regional Live Literature events can also be found at our new linked website:

Live Literature is a blanket term for performance poetry, spoken word, story-telling and book readings; anything that makes the written word live.

New Writing Live is The New Writing Partnership’s new live literature programme. We’re here to support live lit artists and producers. We also want to develop audiences and keep those passionate about words in touch with what’s going on at their local venues. By working with producers, performers, venues, audiences and existing organisations we aim to increase the quantity, quality and diversity of live literature in the region.
