In January 2021, Next Chapter brought together emerging writers to take part in a brand new, 12 week mentoring program online. Learning from established artists with a publishing platform, the Next Chapter course members built an online space to create, up-skill and foster their own vital community.  

We are proud to present the Next Chapter showcase, highlighting the work of these writers who have collaborated with The Double Negative, Bido Lito, iWoman Academy and ROOT-ed Magazine to create, poetry, memoir, podcasts, music review, articles on culture and interviews with prominent creative artists in Liverpool.

This e-book explores themes of identity, representations in the media, joy and the creative culture in Liverpool. Available to read below, just click the image to access the e-book and the play buttons to listen to the Podcasts. Enjoy.

This project is part of the ESF community grants- reconnect for Merseyside, and is funded by ESF and ESFA and in partnerships with WEA and the Liverpool Combined Authority.

This is just the start and we can’t wait to see what our participants can do next. Want to know how to get involved with WoW? Check our What’s On page and the latest projects coming your way.
