Low Income / Community Writing

This section is devoted to supporting writing communities, collaborative writing projects, and emerging writers who cannot pay for help. I’ll be updating this section with news of ongoing projects — and you’ll also find details of free workshops and drop-in sessions under Events.

Are you struggling to develop your writing while making ends meet?


I hope I can help.

I’m currently working on ways to raise funding which will enable me to offer all the options described in this website for free to emerging writers on limited means. Keep an eye on this section for announcements towards the end of 2017.

But in the meantime, if you need help and can’t afford to pay, please don’t hesitate to get in touch, and I’ll do what I can.

Collaborative and Community Writing Projects


I’m passionate about the power of collaborative writing as a form of activism, and as a way of creating lasting change in communities.

At the moment I’m working on building a network of like minds for supporting and promoting collaborative writing projects, particularly those with a strong social justice/community restoration agenda, and we’re aiming to announce a dedicated platform for this work by the beginning of 2018. But we’re keen to help with whatever you’re doing right now — so, wherever you are, if you have a project in development and could use some extra enthusiasm and input, please get in touch and introduce yourself!

Whatever I can offer in the way of techniques, resources, encouragement or contacts, I will.

Here are a few examples of projects which have inspired me:
