On Wednesday the 30th March 2011 we had the devastating news that our funding with Arts Council England would not continue beyond April 2012. We are determined that this will not be an end of The Writers in Prison Network, and we are busy tracking down new funding streams in order that the invaluable work that all of our Writer's in Residence achieve may continue into the future.
We have been overwhelmed in the office by the sheer volume of emails and phone calls offering support and there has been a common feeling of sheer disbelief and anger that this has happened. So in answer to all of your support we thought that we would create a blog to keep you all up to date with what is going on, what is being planned and also give you an opportunity to let us know your thoughts.
Clive, Pauline and Stef
