Responsible for the New Writer Development Programme.

Book Communications is an independent partnership working in arts education, reader and writer development and live literature promotion. We specialise in project management, fundraising and marketing projects, all of which involve creative reading and writing based activity. Book Communications is Midlands based and has made a significant contribution to creating a vibrant writer economy in the region.

Clients, amongst others, include Arts Council England, The Man Booker Prize, Booktrust, a number of UK Library Authorities and Opening the Book Ltd.  

Book Communications and Equal

The Equal Project has given our organisation the opportunity to develop the craft and skills of a number of Birmingham based writers. As an organisation that employs writers to deliver a range of different projects, we are always looking to identify new Birmingham-based talent. Through projects such as Equal we are able to encourage writers to stay in the region and help the city’s writing economy to thrive.

‘Equal has also demonstrated that there is a need to provide more support for emerging writers and the project has given us a platform to find ways of supporting similar activity in the future.‘
