The Writing Squad is the North West’s development programme for emerging young writers. Meeting in Manchester, Newcastle and Sheffield, they nurture young talent through workshops, mentoring and ongoing, creative projects. Lenni Sanders and James Varney are current members of the Writing Squad and frequent collaborators and performers, both with each other and whoever else they can get their respective hands on. The pair enjoy following the process, through prose, poetry and reporting, as they investigate how far collaboration can be taken to channel multiple voices into a single piece.
