Free membership to the London Writers Network for London-based A-Level students


Spread the Word is offering free membership to London-based sixth form students who have been affected by the A-Level crisis.

If you missed out on a place to study English Literature or Creative Writing at University, or have missed out on getting into your first choice University, we’d like to offer you one year’s free membership to the London Writers Network.

The London Writers Network is Spread the Word’s membership scheme and offers these benefits:

a free space at specially curated London Writers Network events a year, that focus on developing your knowledge of the writing world and enhancing your networks.

quarterly London Writers Network Lowdown newsletters jam-packed with opportunities to help your writing and career to flourish – check out an example here: London Writers Network_ Lowdown #10

10% off standard prices of Spread the Word’s events, workshops and masterclasses from our regular programme:

special offers from our friends and partners. Present offers for members include 50% off subscriptions to the Bookseller, 10% off the Royal Society of Literature’s membership scheme10% off The Riff Raff’s Services for writers.

This membership is usually £25 per year but we are offering a limited number of complimentary memberships to students directly affected by the A-Level crisis.

This offer is for London-based writers only; though you can have applied to any university in the country. This offer is for one year of membership – you are welcome to continue your membership after this expires but will need to pay for this.

If you’d like to apply for a free membership, please email Aliya Gulamani at [email protected]:

  • Your name, e-mail address and postcode

  • A short summary as to how you’ve been affected by the A-Level crisis

  • Evidence that you have been affected by the A-Level crisis i.e. confirmation forms via UCAS or a University letter.

There is no deadline for this opportunity as we appreciate that the crisis is continually unfolding. Do get in touch if you have any questions.
