An online space to explore, create & share stories

Pop Up Hub is our online resource that facilitates connectivity, creativity and collaboration. Hub brings experiential interactions with children’s literature online and introduces diverse authors and quality books to new audiences. It helps connect reading with creativity and self-expression while democratising storytelling and self-publishing. Through Hub, we hope to help transform readers into writers.

Hub consists of an online database of books, a growing collection of videos, stories, poetry and crafts created by authors and illustrators inspired by their books and creative writing tools to spark teachers’ and students’ imaginations.

In the Engine Room, you’ll find an ever-expanding library of quality books featuring in our schools programmes. The Factory hosts a bank of child-centred resources to inspire children to write, draw and make stories. To see examples of student’s work that is inspired by books they’ve read, head to the Showroom. The Control Centre allows teachers to share activities they have tried out in the classroom with other teachers across Pop Up’s network.
