ARTSWORDS, Swindon’s Literature Development Programme, is alive and well. It works to organise, encourage, support, and run creative, entertaining, and educational word-based activities in town.

These include the following:

  • SWINDON ARTSWORDS READING GROUP – meets monthly to enjoy good book talk.

  • Regular READING GROUPS – in libraries and elsewhere.

  • A WRITERS’ CAFÉ, LIFE WRITING GROUPS, and MUM’S THE WORD WRITING GROUP – happen regularly, a chance to meet other writers, get guidance, be inspired, and write.

  • A MENTORING SERVICE for READERS and WRITERS – available on request.

For further information on any of the above, or any reading or writing related matters, contact Matt Holland by phone

ARTSWORDS is funded and supported by Arts Council England South West, Swindon Borough Council’s Culture Swindon, and Swindon Libraries Service.
