The KidsWhoWrite organisation believes all children should be actively encouraged to read and write and, they should be able to do it well where ever possible. Unfortunately, due to the increase in texting, young people these days are inclined to use abbreviated language. They may not realise it but the lack of using correct grammar, punctuation and spelling could have an adverse effect on their future working life - much the same way as not being able to add up can.
Through writing a child can utilise their imagination and creativity, developing stories which are sometimes based on their personal experiences. We believe some children use writing as a way of expressing their emotions and feelings, especially when they cannot physically explain what they are going through at the time. Putting ‘pen to paper’ gives these youngsters an anonymous outlet to express themselves, as well as allowing them to unload their fears in a safe way.
Without up and coming writers the book world will diminish. For this reason, Kids Who Write would like to see all children being introduced to the joys writing. In order to help these young writers develop this craft, Kids Who Write has developed a programme where we call upon experienced writers and other professionals within the world of writing to join us. By utilising their own experiences we feel these artists can encourage our future writers, artists, editors and possibly journalists towards a fulfilling future. We are also include young illustrators within this programme.
