Literature Works is the regional literature development agency for the South West. They nurture and support literature throughout the region. The team at Literature Works are pleased to be offering a set of six one-to-one advice surgeries on Monday afternoons in February for writers based in Weston-super-Mare and the surrounding areas, connected to Weston Writers’ Nights.

During these sessions, they will contribute advice and guidance on your literature project or idea.

These sessions are offered free of charge.

They will take place on 8th15th and 22nd February and there are two afternoon slots available per day:
12 pm – 1 pm, and 2 pm – 3 pm.

These can be booked on a first-come, first-served basis.

The sessions will focus on these main areas:

Funding – finding potential sources and making a convincing case
Networks – connecting you to helpful people and projects
Project management – such as setting budgets, planning and governance
Evaluation, metrics and impact – the basic principles, dos and don’ts
Audience development – making and executing a plan
Social media and website advice

Please follow the links below to book your one-to-one session through the Literature Works box office:
Monday 8th February 2021
Monday 15th February 2021
Monday 22nd February 2021


Literature Works asks that once you have secured your place using the ‘book now’ button, you email no later than one week before your session to provide them with a short summary of your project or idea (maximum 50 words) and indicate which two of the above six areas you are particularly interested in focusing on. They will do their best to talk across the range of focuses you select and will allocate a member of their team to run your session based on availability and skill set.

You will then be emailed an online meeting invitation.

Please note, if we do not hear from you one week prior to your session, regrettably we will need to move your session to later in the year. This is because we need time to prepare and to allocate staff time to these sessions, which are very popular. These sessions are reserved for writers from Weston-super-Mare and the surrounding area.
