Connecting Stories

The National Literacy trust set up the Connecting Stories creative writing competition,  with the intention to  to inspire a love of writing among children and young people, giving them the opportunity to tell their own story, in their own words, based on a theme specific to their local area.

Last week, 16 brilliant volunteers from Emerald provided invaluable support, reading over 480 creative writing entries, in doing so freed up 32 hours for the NLT team allowed them to keep providing the children and young people they work with sustained support throughout the Connecting Stories project, which nationally is expected to reach 374 schools and has resulted in 1200 stories.

A huge thank you to everyone who volunteered their time to give each child the careful consideration that their stories deserve.
