Organisation Description

Ministry of Stories champions the writer in every child.

Co-founded by author Nick Hornby in 2010, we help young people discover their confidence, imagination and potential through the power of their writing. We develop self-respect and communication skills through innovative writing programmes and one-to-one mentoring for children living in under-resourced communities, working in schools, and at our dedicated writing centre in east London.
