Connecting Writers and Writing

ArtfulScribe is a not-for-profit writer development agency based in Southampton. We support emerging and continuing writers in Hampshire, Dorset, and the Solent region to create new work and develop skills through writing workshops, live events and career-development opportunities. We work with all ages and levels of ability, from primary years through to life's later stages. Our work includes collaboration with schools, businesses and organisations, embedding writing into everyday activities through residencies, creative programmes and individual events that celebrate both spoken and written word.

Support our ArtfulScribe community

As a not-for-profit organisation, ArtfulScribe serves a wide community of writers, working with people from early years through to life's later stages, including those living with poverty, challenging mental health conditions, or facing other barriers affecting their quality of life. We aim to foster and nurture a love of literature in those we serve, some of whom may be encountering the empowering gift of creative writing for the first time. And it is such a gift, to so many people, regardless of gender or social, economic, racial, or cultural differences.

If you are able to support our work, and help others access this life-enriching activity, we'd really appreciate your support. If you are able and willing to help us help others, we would really appreciate any donations you can afford. Thank you.
