Identity Writer’s group started in the 1980s and many BAME writers have passed through Commonword’s doors since then. New members are always welcome.

Identity meets every Wednesday, 6.30pm – 8.30pm (online during 2020).

We have a diverse programme ranging from the workshops themselves to performances, launches, seminars, translation sessions, conferences, hook-ups, Masterclasses, events and the occasional writers’ lunch!

Identity is launching a collection of new writing from current Identity members. You can download the pdf booklet of Loose Connections and listen to the writers reading their work on soundcloud by clicking here.
