Literature, Writing and Identity

Aimed at small groups of students (aged 7 upwards), we use biography and story telling to inspire pupils to create their own writing. Our work uses a range of stimulus from diverse literature (mainly English but some Urdu as well), music and personal story to provide a catalyst for young people’s writing.

It has never been easier to self publish and modern technology enables young people to share their work with others. We aim for children to aspire to be writers of the future.

Hanif Kureishi Said:

Our stories, dreams, poems, enable us to experience ourselves as strange to ourselves. It is also where we think of how we should live
