What We Do

Our vision is of a more literate, creative society where reading, writing and storytelling are widely valued, enjoyed, practiced and celebrated. Our mission is to work collaboratively with educational, literary and cultural organisations to enable children, empower teachers, and engage families from all walks of life to read more widely, write more creatively, and develop visual storytelling skills.
