truth & dare

Helping you to connect, creatively

truth & dare is all about finding and telling stories through writing, mixed media and performance - about taking risks and making connections.


“Only connect! That was the whole of her sermon. Only connect the prose and the passion, and both will be exalted, and human love will be seen at its height. Live in fragments no longer.”

― E.M. Forster, Howards End

We are telling stories about ourselves all of the time. Getting to the truth of those stories is what gives energy and life to writing or performance, what connects readers to writers, audiences to performers. But unearthing it takes work and courage.

truth & dare is all about helping you to do just that, on the page or the stage, as a writer, a performer or an audience member; about taking risks and having fun.

Whether you want to connect with like-minds in a creative writing workshop, find your story at a creative writing retreat in the beautiful Mid Devon natural landscape or connect with the lively spoken word and poetry scene at a reading, performance, or open mic, we've got the event for you.
