Follow WoW’s newest project on Instagram: @wow_superheroes all about Super Heroes: Words are our power. We were awarded over £200,000 from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation to expand on our project, all about helping develop children’s literacy skills through creating their own superhero!

Last week we had Lord Bourne, Minister for Faith visit WoW premises. He wanted to find out more about us, our new Windrush project (more information to come!) and meet some project participants and artists including Addae Gaskin, Rose Thomas, Ray Quarless and Levi Tafari. 📸: @markmcnulty
Well, that's a wrap on #WoWFest19 This year we have held over 60 events throughout the month of May! We’ve had a fantastic time bringing some of the best writers, spoken word artists, poets, journalists, commentators & activists to Liverpool, including Billy Bragg, Will Self, Jo Brand, Mike Leigh, Peter Tatchell and Helen Pankhurst. From Catalonia to Tehran, Brexit to Grime, the Environmental Crisis to Queer Are We Now?, we hope we’ve achieved our aim of delivering one of the best writing and literary festivals in the UK. Thanks to you all our guests, audiences, partners, volunteers and our sponsors – we couldn't have done it without you!
