Voices and Stories: Reclaiming Our Place Across Digital and Physical Spaces

Introduction to Write On! Magazine with Editor, Madeleine White and Pen to Print Manager, Lena Smith.

Write On! Magazine was born in June 2019, co-created by a team of writing volunteers, published by Pen to Print. The volunteers bring a wealth of experience, with backgrounds in writing, including magazine publication and editing. Some are artists, authors and poets in their own right.

Bringing together all this creative talent led to producing Write On! a writing publication full of interviews, articles, and helpful tips for like-minded writers.

Madeleine White has produced a number of national and international web and print magazines and over the last three years, she has been focusing on being founder/editor of the Write On! suite of publications.

Barking and Dagenham Libraries and Pen to Print are proud to host our eleventh annual Literary Festival which takes place between Monday 5 September and Friday 23 September.

We are delighted to showcase our events both online and in-person. This is a wonderful festival which provides a great opportunity to meet authors, discover new genres and celebrate the joy of reading through a wide range of events.

We are really pleased to say that all events do remain FREE. We do this through the generosity of The London Borough of Barking and Dagenham and Arts Council England.
