Young Writers

NLT nature poetry workshop - 27.06 40.jpg

Our evidence-based Young Writers programme supports schools to develop lasting writing-for-enjoyment practices with the radical view that every young person is a writer.

In addition to our well-established Young Poets programme, we piloted a range of new programmes based on our three-pillar model for writing. Every school participating in Young Writers is provided with support to use each pillar to help improve students’ engagement with writing.
