We are delighted to announce our new online literary programme. 

Designed in response to the Covid-19 lockdown, it will enable us to continue delivering our mission to support and raise awareness of the contributions of writers, poets, playwrights and authors of colour, born, living in or connected to Sussex & the South East.

We have some brilliant names lined up -- including Dean Atta, Jacob Ross, Kadija Sesay, Sharon Duggal, Catherine Johnson, Alinah Azadeh, Sean Wai Keung  -- and we're launching a new literary magazine, Covert.

Huge thanks to supporters and partners Arts Council England, New Writing South, African Night Fever, Brighton & Hove Black History Month, Crawley Wordfest & Diverse Crawley and Diversity Lewes.
