What We Do

Words of Colour Productions is a social enterprise that creates programmes for budding and established writers of all genres. We also work with creative practitioners, SMEs and voluntary and community organisations to get their ideas, work and writing seen, heard and archived.

Our tailored programmes, products and solutions are inclusive and draw on an experienced team as well as delivery partners and contacts from the media and creative industries. We deliver through training, consultancy, events, e-learning and contract publishing. Read our objectives
