Write to Work - Liverpool City Region ESF Community Grant success
The project provides a "12-week course that helps unemployed learners explore a diverse range of writing skills, help you get a job or explore further education or vocational training." And the results have been exceptional, with the students going on to win writing competitions, having work published in the Guardian and creating a book of their creative efforts. The project's latest book, 'Jigsaw' was recently launched, and it runs alongside some of the students finding work as self-employed proof-readers, copywriters, and even self-publishing novels!
