Margins to Mainstream with Michael Sheen

A portrait of Michael Sheen with big curly hair and a beard, with the text Margins to Mainstream with Michael Sheen.

A Writing Chance is a project created and co-funded by Michael Sheen which aims to help new writers and journalists from under-represented and lower-income backgrounds have their voices heard and their stories told. Michael has produced a series of radio programmes about the 11 new writers mentored by the project.

There was a live event at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama at the end of February 2022, where Michael and other performers read from the work of each of the writers, and those readings feature in the radio programmes.

You can listen to each episode on BBC Sounds, which is available globally, as it becomes available each week. Note that from June 2022 there have been bonus episodes being posted:
