The Writing Platform is a website and program of live events dedicated to arming writers with digital knowledge. The Writing Platform is a free online resource for all writers and poets emerging, established, not yet published, traditionally published and self-published who are looking for neutral and best practice information about writing in a digital age in order to inform their practice and career choices. The Writing Platform is funded by the National Lottery, and supported by Arts Council England (Grants for the Arts). It is run by The Literary Platform in association with Bath Spa University and also has the support of a number of other literary organisations.
The Writing Platform has had the endorsement of a range of organisations including Literature Works, Geekcamp in association with The Reading Agency, The Curved House, if:Book, The Literary Consultancy, The National Academy of Writing, National Poetry Day, Portal Entertainment, Wattpad, Words of Colour Productions and Unbound.
