 “The Year of writing has achieved a lot this year, getting many people across the city involved in writing and creativity. The Writing 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.”

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

“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.
