Writing in Action

Writing in Action is a project managed by Cleveland Arts. It will allow a number of aspiring writers to attend some writing surgeries and some one-to-one sessions with some of Teesside’s more established writers.

Rowena Sommerville, Cleveland Arts Literature Development Worker says “We can’t promise fortune, fame or publication, but we can guarantee an interesting experience! I look forward to a deluge of fantastic reading.”

If you would like to apply to be part of this project, then please send a small selection of your work – say six poems or a couple of short stories or chapters – with brief biographical details, to Rowena Sommerville, Cleveland Arts, 3rd Floor, Melrose House, Melrose Street, Middlesbrough TS1 2HZ before the end of the first week in September. Rowena cannot guarantee to return work, so please do not send your sole precious copies of anything.

TVA is a participatory arts organisation, based in Middlesbrough and working across the Tees Valley, helping people change and improve their lives by taking part in the arts. TVA is a small organisation which makes a big impact in imaginative and unexpected ways.
