National Writing Day is an annual celebration of the power of writing creatively, inspiring people of all ages and abilities to try writing for fun and self-expression.

The next National Writing Day is due to take place on 23 June 2021.

For National Writing Day 2020 we published new research which shows that lockdown has inspired a resurgence in children and young people’s creative writing, which has in turn played an important role in supporting their wellbeing during this time of uncertainty.

We've rounded up some of our favourite writing activities to help you celebrate and get writing.
