In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have suspended in-person Quay Words events up to and including the end of May. We continue to monitor Government guidance in the interest of public safety and we will post updates here. Meanwhile, we have moved some elements of the Quay Words programme online and we will be announcing these soon. You can find out more about our plans here and you can sign up to be kept informed via the Literature Works monthly newsletter here. Online Quay Words events can be found here. Literature Works programmes Quay Words on behalf of Exeter Canal and Quay Trust.

In mid-March, just before the lockdown, we were thrilled to announce the success of Exeter Canal and Quay Trust’s bid to Arts Council England National Lottery Projects towards a further two years of Quay Words at Exeter Custom House. This fantastic support, combined with a significant investment by Exeter Canal and Quay Trust secures the continued development of an accessible, democratic and hands-on literature hub at this iconic Exeter location. Quay Words showcases literature as a diverse art form and is a central pillar of Exeter’s successful bid to gain UNESCO City of Literature status.

Working with a strong coalition of Exeter collaborators, we can forge ahead with a range of exciting plans, all very much based on what audiences and participants told us during consultations and the pilot phase. Read more about our plans, here.
