The Writing Hub

"Get it down. Take chances. It may be bad, but that's the only way you can do anything really good." William Faulkner

Supporting our community of writers at Brookes

The Writing Hub is a gathering point for people interested in developing writing skills at Brookes. It encompasses staff and students, our academic writers across the disciplines, our present or future professional writers and those at every stage of developing their writing. The Writing Hub provides a network for sharing writing development activities and hosts regular events and writing retreats. It is a supportive space in which to share experiences, adopt new techniques and get beyond the imperfections of first drafts to reach your full potential.
