The Inscribe programme
Inscribe is a successful writer development programme aimed at writers of African and Asian descent and is run by co-directors Kadija George and Dorothea Smartt, and funded by Arts Council England. The Inscribe programme aims to assist writers of colour in England to professionally advance their creative work and their careers. We welcome writers of poetry, fiction & non-fiction.With its roots in Peepal Tree's practice of editorial development, Inscribe supports writers in England through coaching, mentoring, workshops, residentials, training, newsletters, publications and general advice. Coaching/ Mentoring enquiries are handled by Dorothea Smartt. Inscribe also develops books, including Red, an anthology of black British poetry and Closure, an anthology of black British short stories and chapbooks for Inscribe supported writers. The Inscribe imprint is managed by Kadija George.
Writers in Leeds and surrounding areas can join the Peepal tree/Inscribe readers and writers group. Email for more information about joining.
