National Writing Day

Posted by theministry on 22nd June 2021

It’s National Writing Day and we’re celebrating with a letter to someone special.


It’s National Writing Day 2021 and we are celebrating the power of words and writing with First Story.

After more than a year of separation, this National Writing Day is all about connection.

We’re going to #fillthebox with letters to our heroes, following along with one of our most popular writing resources,¬† Writing Fan Mail.

Follow our guide to pen an ode to your best friend, show your support for an NHS hero or cheer on Raheem Sterling for England.
