Wednesday 24th January: Jigsaw Book Launch


Date: Wednesday 24th January 2018 
Time: 7pm
Venue: Studio 2 (Parr Street Studios 33-45 Parr Street, Liverpool L1 4JN)


Jigsaw 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 third book, with readings from the writers and the opportunity to meet them all.

This will be an exciting opportunity to exclusively listen to new local Liverpool talent. The success of the Write to Work programme has been far reaching with writers having gone on to have articles published in The Guardian, become freelance copywriters and proofreaders, as well as obtaining full time jobs within the arts sector.   

Write to Work
is a twelve-week programme, helping unemployed learners explore a diverse range of writing skills, from blogging to review writing to copy writing, serving as a route to employment, further education or vocational training.
