New literary cultural centre dedicated to creative writing in all its forms set to launch in Kingston

Writers' Centre Kingston (WCK) is a literary cultural centre dedicated to creative writing in all its forms, with an annual programme of events from talks to workshops and festivals, with the first of a dozen events focusing on the topic of Living. The events will be held across Kingston, with the first scheduled for Dorich House Museum.

The programme brings together some of the finest writers from across the UK and the world in conversation with the exceptional staff of Kingston University, drawn from a wide variety of writing disciplines - from fiction to journalism, poetry to art writing, even including the sciences and beyond.

The understanding of writing is inclusive and innovative, and it is fundamental to WCK's mission that audiences and participants are a mix of students alongside the considerable local community of writers and literary devotees.

Writers' Centre Kingston builds on the decade-long legacy of Kingston Writing School and aims to create a unique, groundbreaking and adaptable centre that inspires all who attend or participate with a dynamic and original approach to live literature and writing culture.
