We Are Writers is a fun, worthwhile project which is proven to raise and promote literacy standards in a school.

“I am SO impressed with the whole We Are Writers process. The children screamed when they saw their books and kept chanting, ‘We’re published authors!’ From the ease of uploading the stories online, to the quick customer service response and overall professional look of the books, I couldn’t be happier. I will definitely be ordering with you every year.” Melanie Taylor, owner of Little Star Writing which provides inspiring writing workshops for children

“The children were very excited by the whole process, it gave them a real purpose for writing.” St George Primary School, Abergele, Conwy

“A once-in-a-lifetime experience for a child and parent to have their work in print.” Bryngwyn Primary School, Abertillery, Gwent

“We Are Writers as well as other initiatives have helped raise the percentage of children getting Level 4 and above in their Key Stage 2 SATs from 60% to 85%.” St Mary’s C of E Primary School, Brent, London
