Director, Literature and South East Arts Council England

What is your ‘Good Fight’?

I want more young people to find their voice through being able to write creatively – working with writers and having more opportunities to get their work out there.

What do you need to realise your goal?

I want government to be committed to building this skill base, I want people to help me advocate for the importance of expression – both personally and in the workplace.

I’d like to raise more resource from other partners – in various sectors.

Where can we find out more? – there is a strategic fund of £1.4m open now.
