We are so, so sad at hearing the news of Linda Meagor’s death, a sadness that we know is being shared across the whole of the artistic and cultural community in Merseyside. We first met Linda in late 2014, when she was working for Culture Liverpool, and was helping us find a venue for one of our festival events. We were struck by her enthusiasm, commitment and shining personality. From then on, we – I say we – all the WoW team past and present, collectively and individually, became friends with Linda; how could you not be friends with her? She had a unique ability to be knowledgeable about the arts, an astute and highly organised organiser, and always retain her sense of balance, never ‘losing it’ as is so often the case when we’re all under the usual insane pressures of festival and event delivery, and keep her sense of fun, with her own great laugh.

WRITING ON THE WALL
Missed the book launch? Jigsaw is now available to buy online and paperback soon from Waterstone's and directly from our office is Toxteth Library. This is the third book published from our course, Write to Work. The course is funded by the Liverpool City Region ESF Community Grant.
Our first Enterprise Hub event for 2018 was on Wednesday 24th January at Central Library, and featured acclaimed novelist Tony Schumacher in-conversation with WoW Co-Director Mike Morris. They talked about his latest novel, An Army of One, which concludes his enthralling John Rossett trilogy and Tony's own journey of how he became a writer. There was certainly a buzz for this event. This event was part of Enterprise Hub's Start Up Festival that took place all over the city. There was also a chance to sign up for the next Enterprise Hub drop in session at Writing on the Wall, which focuses on giving creative, business advice.
The Liverpool 8 Law Centre was one of the most significant community organisations in the city. To a community who bore the brunt of high unemployment and government spending cuts combined with institutionalised racism, it provided support, legal advice and sanctuary. The exciting new Heritage Lottery funded L8 Archives Project will explore, collate and catalogue the collections of the Liverpool 8 law centre and other key community organisations. Using existing material and through the creation of new audio and visual recordings, a unique and important archive will be produced, charting the history, events and influences that have led to the diversity of cultures which make up the Liverpool 8 community and BAME Communities across the City. Writing on the Wall are currently recruiting participants to support this exciting project who wish to gain new skills.
