Quay Words presents a range of opportunities for anyone who wants to have a go at writing.

Building on our two successful pilot seasons, the next two years will see Quay Words continue to establish identifiable, lasting and meaningful strands: ways in and opportunities to develop; free family activities; collaboration with schools, students and young writers; concessions, bursaries, membership options and socially engaged work.

Quay Words also showcases the work of new and developing writers. Look out for Quay Voices events, where new voices get the chance to perform alongside more established writers. 2021 will see the publication of the first Quay Words writing anthology, packed with writing and stories from the many people, young and old, who have joined us on Exeter Quayside to engage with the love of words.
