The Brit Writers' Awards is an exciting initiative designed to encourage and inspire new writing talent — particularly among young people. We want to show pupils — and people of all ages throughout the rest of the UK — that creative writing is an exciting and powerful way to increase your literacy skills, enhance your capacity for self-expression and turn your dreams into reality.
Over 400,000 children are now involved from Schools across the UK in the Brit Writers Creative Writing Programme for Schools. We provide downloadable lesson plans, writing resources, project ideas & support, author visits as well as resources to support internal writing competitions. Membership for all Special Needs schools is free of charge and we place a special emphasis on involving parents, families and wider community.
