Young Writers

NLT nature poetry workshop - 27.06 40.jpg

Our evidence-based Young Writers programme offers a solution to schools that seek to develop lasting writing-for-enjoyment practices. Believing that every young person is a writer, our programme uses a three-pillar model that emphasises the importance of memorable experiences, working with professional authors and providing a real audience and purpose for writing.

The programme prioritises agency, empowering pupils to choose what they write about and the format they write in. Pupils who take part in Young Writers feel more confident in their writing abilities, enjoy writing more, and see writing for enjoyment more positively. Teachers recognise the impact of different Young Writers projects, and how the different pedagogical elements inspire pupils to write for enjoyment in a way that also meets national curriculum requirements for writing.
