A hub for a number of exciting writing events, projects and publications in collaboration with Valley Press, York Literature Festival, and other community partners.
In the past we have welcomed authors such as Kathleen Jamie, Sarah Hall, Michel Faber, Daljit Nagra and Margaret Atwood, who have inspired students and members of the local community alike.
The Centre curates two print publications, both published by Valley Press and providing commissioning, editing and publishing experience to undergraduate and postgraduate students:
