Students at Forest Hall School in Stansted are being challenged to take part in National Writing Day, an initiative delivered by arts and literacy organisations across the UK.
The national event, on June 24, gives keen writers access to nine feature-length creative writing video tutorials as they continue to learn from home due to the coronavirus crisis.
Sarah Wedgbrow, English teacher, said: “We’ve had quite a few successes in the past with published mini-sagas and would like to now join a collaborative community of publishers, authors and educators with this initiative.”
Sarah Power, enrichment lead, said: “We, as a school, want our students to continue engaging with the curriculum and this is a fantastic opportunity for students to show off their writing skills.”
Pieces of work are being shared on Twitter by students under the hashtag #writefromhome and the school is sending certificates to those taking part.
