National Writing Day 2018

28 June 2018

This week the country celebrated National Writing Day and SMMA were keen to get involved! The annual celebration aims to inspire people across the UK to get writing and to tell their story.

SMMA took part by holding a creative writing workshop led by our very own in-house author, Kate Ashley. Thirty budding young writers were invited to attend the workshop and learn how to make a believable character in their writing.

Katie Castle from Year 7 said: ‘I enjoyed the workshop very much. It was great to create my own story in such a fun and informative environment! I definitely feel inspired to start writing more in my own time.’

A big thank you to Kate Ashley for inspiring these young writers and for passing on your love and knowledge of creative writing on such a special day!
