Commonword is a writing development organisation based in Manchester, providing opportunities for new and aspiring writers to develop their talent and potential. Our competitions, workshops and events act as a point of focus for many writers seeking encouragement and confidence. From small beginnings in 1977, we have grown into the largest new writing, community writing and publishing organisation in the North West. We work on regional, national and international levels, promoting new writing and helping new writers become more successful.

Cultureword is one of the strands of Commonword. It was established in 1986 as a centre for Black creative writing in the North West of England. It has achieved national renown for discovering, developing and promoting Asian, African Caribbean and Chinese writers. Cultureword provides the facilities for people to develop their writing, and our activities act as a point of focus for many writers seeking encouragement and confidence. Cultureword is a part of Commonword.
