Write to Work
Mosaics Book Launch
Writing on the Wall are proud to present the book launch of Mosaics, an anthology showcasing 13 talented new Liverpool based writers, from our first innovative Write to Work programme.
Mosaics is a captivating collection of diverse stories, poems, reviews, articles and observations. Each piece in this anthology, from the humorous to the heartbreaking, highlights the quality writing produced by the participants and the diversity of skills learnt on the Write to Work course. Please join us in celebrating the launch of this book, with readings from the writers and the opportunity to meet them all.
The Write to Work programme is a dynamic initiative that supports participants to develop and strengthen their writing skills for the workplace and beyond. With the rise of social media, advancement of technologies and the increasing demand on workers to diversify their skillset, good writing skills have become essential. Over 12-weeks the course aims to help unemployed learners explore their writing through a diverse range of writing skills from creative writing & storytelling, writing for publicity, blogging & social media, website skills, writing for gaming, serving as a pathway to employment, further education or vocational training.
Write to Work has been funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) & The Worker’s Educational Association (WEA) as part of a £1m programme to tackle unemployment in the Merseyside region, particularly providing support for people with disabilities and long-term health conditions; women, single parents; people from ethnic minorities, people over 50 and those planning to return to the workplace after a long period of absence.
Thursday 12th October 6.30pm at the Siren Café, 54 St James St, Liverpool L1 0AB For more information on the Write to Work programme go to www.write-to-work.co.uk
