Supporting Children Writing At Home

We appreciate that many of your are trying to support children as writers while they are at home. We have created the following home resource to help and it’s been produced using the findings from our own Writing For Pleasure research (Young 2019). 

Please share this resource widely. Send it to friends, family, parents, teachers and anyone else you think could benefit. Let’s help families to be together, write together and share together!
