ways with words
e are delighted to announce that we've received a grant of £93,000 from the Esmee Fairbairn Trust to help us "explore how new media can be used to generate active reading, creative writing and fresh enthusiasm for literature amongst young people". In collaboration with teachers and writers, we'll be creating a library of materials for schools made in CommentPress and Sophie, running workshops and building on the success of our recent project FOUND, funded by Booktrust.
We'll be creating a steering group of advisors for the project and working with if:book associate, web writer and designer Toni Lebusque.
