Established in 2000 WoW have championed radical writing, community, diversity and creativity in Liverpool for the past 21 years. Through our projects, workshops and events, we are committed to providing our participants and communities with opportunities to engage with the arts, upskill, grow in confidence, get published and much, much more .
As a National Portfolio Organisation (NPO) for Arts Council England, we're an established and respect part of Liverpool's cultural sector, regularly leading on city-wide initiatives with key partners from the city. Our response and support for our communities during the pandemic lead to us being named the LCR's Arts Organisation of the Year and we continue to support and champion the experiences of some of the most marginalised voices in the city.
‘This course has quite literally changed my life. It has been one of the best things I have ever done and to think that I found it by accident makes me think that it must have been meant to be. I was at an extremely low point in my life when I found this course and I was terrified. However, the course changed all that. The tutors and the staff who run the course have been so personable and welcoming, inspiring and encouraging that for the first time ever I have started to believe that my voice is important and has value. I have developed the confidence to speak in front of people and to show words that had been hidden away for many years. This course is invaluable and priceless’
