Life at The Writer

We make shift happen

We’re a team of 30-odd people working together to find the words that shift the world. That’s our purpose. And while we’re a motley crew, it’s one goal we all have in common, whether we’re a few feet or a whole ocean apart.

The rest of the time, you might find us swapping book recs, debating the best Percy Pig variety (any Phizzy Pigtail fans out there?), helping out at literacy charities and sending a few too many gifs in our emails.
