What we’ve done

“(Megaphone)… created a safe community for us to be ourselves, to laugh, to cry and to be confident enough to say ‘I’m having a hard time with this’ when we weren’t feeling things were going right. “ – anonymous participant feedback (2017)

2015 – 2017
The Megaphone Writer Development Scheme ran from 2015 – 2017 with funding from Arts Council England, The Publishers’ Association, Melissa Cox and in kind support from Writing West Midlands as well as many editors and agents. It supported 5 writers: Maisie Chan, Danielle Jawando, Nafisa Muhtadi, Joyce Efia-Harmer and Avantika Taneja.
