National Writing Day 2020 is coming on Wednesday 24 June 2020!

This will be the fourth annual celebration of the pleasure and power of writing creatively, inspiring people of all ages and abilities to try writing for fun and self-expression.

We know how important National Writing Day is. Our research shows that writing for pleasure is needed more than ever. Fewer than 1 child in 5 (17.3%) said that they write something that isn’t for school at least once a day.
