Write Away! is a creative writing consultancy set up in 2001 to provide support for young writers (7-16 years) and teachers through the organisation and delivery of short courses and INSET provision and the Write Away! website.
Current projects include Live Writing Online, a three-year programme run in partnership with Ultralab at Anglia Polytechnic University and Essex Literature Development. In workshops, a group of young writers and creative writing teachers work together to investigate the potential of online writing and to explore creative applications of new technologies to their work, learning new skills in animation, digital photography and movie making as well as developing their writing.
Write Away! also organises a summer camp for children (7-12 years) on the theme Writing and Performance, which provides an opportunity for students to write for a concentrated period as well as participating in other creative activities such as mask making, puppetry, acting, dance and music making – culminating in a performance of their work.
The Write Away! website runs regular writing competitions and provides free support material for teachers. The web team are currently working with a focus group of teachers and young writers to inform the redesign and development of the site.
For further information, enquiries or to book an event, contact Write Away! Director Nikki Gamble by telephone or e-mail or visit the website.
