New Writing Cumbria is a county-wide literature development project hosted by Eden Arts. It supports and promotes contemporary writers and connects them with each other, and with readers, in Cumbria and beyond.
In print, online, on the page and on the stage, writing in Cumbria is thriving and diverse. New Writing Cumbria is at the hub of a network that includes professional and voluntary arts organisations, small publishers, independent bookshops, book groups, libraries, festival and event promoters, writers’ groups, and individual writers working in many different forms and genres, from beginners to established practitioners.
The New Writing Cumbria website is a one-stop-shop for everything about the county’s literature scene, providing a wealth of news, information and resources. Sign up for the weekly e-newsletter, The Weekly Word, for regular updates plus new poetry and fiction.
New Writing Cumbria is supported by the Northern Rock Foundation.
