First Story

National Writing Day is led by First Story, a national charity changing lives through writing.

First Story believes that writing can transform lives, and that there is dignity and power in every young person’s story.

First Story brings talented, professional writers into secondary schools serving low-income communities to work with teachers and students to foster creativity and communication skills.

By helping students find their voices through intensive, fun programmes, First Story raises aspirations and gives students the skills and confidence to achieve them.

First Story is proud to partner with national arts and literacy organisations and lead the inaugural National Writing Day.
