Literature Development

We have a dedicated Literature Development Officer whose role it is to raise the profile of the written and spoken word through promotion of live literature, reading and writing across Hampshire. We work with libraries and other partners to develop and enrich the range, quality and diversity of literature in Hampshire.

We initiate and support literature activities with an emphasis on audience development, excellence and inclusion. These include hosting visits by authors, both high profile and emerging writers, plus literature in performance, writing workshops, commissions and competitions.

If you’re interested in books and literature, are a producer or consumer of literature, we are here to provide support and information.

You may want to join a Reading Group or a Writers’ Group - we can help you with information, advice and networking.
