Commonwealth Writers was founded more than a decade ago with the explicit goal of inspiring, connecting, and helping to develop writers. Since then, our community has grown to include creatives working in many other areas: from filmmaking and performance poetry; from painting to photography.
This global and close-knit network of creative practitioners from all disciplines and backgrounds is now being recognised through a new name: Commonwealth Writers has become Commonwealth Foundation Creatives.
Commonwealth Foundation Creatives will continue to be a platform where artists can support each other and develop their craft, no matter where in the Commonwealth they hail from.
Our distinguished Commonwealth Short Story Prize, our online literary magazine adda, and our creative opportunities are all still available.
Thank you for your interest in our creative programming and for continuing to share your stories, creative aspirations, and the secrets of your craft with our wider community.
