New Writing Northwest 2021
Litfest Anthology & Launch Events

From 16 March to 28 April 2021, Litfest ran an exciting pilot project — ‘New Writing Northwest’ — a series of workshops in four genres for emerging writers based in the Northwest region. The genres were: Fiction (led by Yvonne Battle-Felton), Nature & Environment Writing (led by Karen Lloyd), Poetry (led by Kim Moore) and Translation (led by Daniel Hahn).

You can download a free copy of our digital anthology below, which showcases the works created by our workshop participants.  We’ll leave the workshop leaders’ introductions, and the talent of these writers to speak for the success of the programme.  We are planning to open for applications for more workshops in the autumn, so watch this space!

To celebrate the talent and hard work of all the workshop participants, we invite you to join us for the launch of the New Writing Northwest 2021 online anthology over three evenings on Zoom.

Poetry – 28 July

Fiction – 3 August

Nature & Environment Writing – 4 August
