Support Poetry in Schools

Writers in Schools has sparked more than 500,000 creative encounters between children and writers in the classroom.

The experience of being taught by a published author is one that will stick with me for the rest of my life.
Young participant

Our writers and storytellers are some of the best-loved and well-known authors in the country, and all artists joining the scheme must meet artistic criteria and undergo a thorough training and mentoring programme, guaranteeing a unique high-quality experience for every school.

Your support will help ensure that as many children as possible benefit from the Writers in Schools experience.
