After the success of their Writers Bootcamp event on 18 September 2021, #LiverpoolWrites are now going on a tour of the Liverpool City Region. The Liverpool Writes Writers Bus will provide access to creative workshops directly to local communities, bringing an array of activities designed to get people writing more.

The Writers Bus will temporarily ‘pop up’ in local community hubs in January 2022, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. over a 12-day period and will offer:

• A writer in residence
• Writing activities and workshops
• Poetry workshops and games
• Writers advice sessions
• Live author readings
• FREE resources and giveaways

The Writers Bus will launch on Wednesday 19 January at Liverpool Central Library before travelling to Granby Adult Learning Centre. Other locations will then follow over the next couple of weeks:

Thursday 20 January at LIFE Rooms, Bootle
Friday 21 January at Incredible Edible Knowsley
Saturday 22 January at the ROMA Community

Mike Morris, Chair of the Year of Writing and Co-Director of Writing on the Wall, said:

The Year of Writing has achieved a lot this year, getting many people across the city involved in writing and creativity. The Writers Bus is an opportunity for us to get out to areas across the city, working with local community groups so that as many people as possible get to work with professional writers – it’s a great initiative, and we are really looking forward to discovering local talent and generating new writing.

And Councillor Barbara Murray, Labour Councillor for Yew Tree Ward and Chair of Education and Skills Select Committee said:

The Liverpool Literacy Cycle was set up to support skills development in the city. I am delighted to report it has delivered creative engagement and opportunities across the city region and beyond given the reach of a growing online and social media presence. In 2021 the Year of Reading was celebrated, this year the focus has been the Year of Writing and 2022 will be Liverpool Year of Oracy and performance.
