Bespoke projects

Custom projects designed to deliver


We’ll work with you to set a brief, then design and programme a bespoke writer-led project that responds to your needs.

A project might come from a school improvement priority, a challenge your school is facing, or just the beginnings of a great idea that you feel needs exploring.

We’ll help you shape your ideas into an inspiring programme with impactful results.

Costs: £300 per day / £150 per half day (plus planning and materials). Costs are based on the shape and size of your project, or can be scaled to the size of your budget.

Bespoke project themes might include:

  • Curriculum programmes – bringing the curriculum to life
  • Literacy interventions and boosters – from supporting reluctant writers to reaching greater depth
  • Writers in residence – creating a school-wide culture of writing
  • PPA / Creative Cover – creative approaches and specialist staffing
  • After school and holiday clubs – enriching classroom learning
  • Staff meetings and CPD (£300 per session) – Supporting teachers to embed creative skills and approaches in the classroom 
  • High quality final outcomes – producing professional publications, anthologies and publishing children’s writing
