The Writing Squad is an independent organisation working in partnership with Sheffield Hallam University, the Manchester Literature Festival and New Writing North. It operates a programme for emerging young writers in the north of England which has, since 2001, worked with sixty-five writers; and has allowed for collaboration between artists, who together develop projects initiated by the squad as a whole.
On each two year squad programme, around thirty writers work with each other and with professional tutors. The organisation offers continued support after that, helping writers make their way in the profession. It also acts a support network for a burgeoning community of emerging writers and producers in the north of England.
