Write2B Limited

Write2B is a literature and arts consultancy specialising in research, strategy, evaluation and project management. It was established by Sue Stewart, poet and former Arts Council Literature Officer, in 2002, and has built a strong reputation for the quality and depth of its work in the field. Most of its projects have been at national level, working with broadcasters, publishers, libraries, individual literature clients and the arts funding sector.

Write2B is based on a belief in the power of the arts to change lives, feed hearts and minds, and provide a source of pleasure and entertainment. On a broader canvass, the arts can also help to develop reflection, empathy and understanding across genders, generations and cultures.

For this reason Write2B has focused primarily on projects which broaden participation — from cross-sector work involving literature in health care settings, to multi-arts broadcast work and pioneering work involving live events on the Internet.
