What is Megaphone?

Megaphone is an online talent development programme for writers of colour in England who are writing for children.

“BEST. WRITERS SCHEME. EVER. Seriously, it’s got me to work hard and push through with my writing.”

– anonymous participant feedback (2017)


The primary activity is MENTORING: six participants, selected on merit, will get a year of one-to-one mentoring and masterclasses from authors and editors as they write their first book to a publishable standard. The places cost £300, with financial support in place for people on low incomes. Check FAQs for more details.
