About National Writing Day
National Writing Day is an annual celebratory project designed to inspire people across the UK to get writing. The message is simple: everyone has a story to tell and sharing it can be a source of pleasure and power.
National Writing Day aims to inspire creative writing on a grand scale - young people are more inclined to write creatively if they see adults around them doing so and writing can benefit people of all ages. National Writing Day welcomes participation from any individual or group, regardless of age, gender, and cultural or economic backgrounds. It takes place this year on Wednesday June 27th and encourages all forms of writing and people to join in via a programme of public, educational and online activities.
