Supporting writers of colour in England to professionally advance their creative work and their careers through coaching, mentoring, workshops, residentials, training, newsletters, publications and general advice.
Inscribe Mission Statement
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, Closure, an anthology of Black British short stories, and most recently Glimpse, edited by Leone Ross, and the first anthology of Black British Speculative fiction. They also publish 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.
