Work with us at Write On!

Write On is seeking new tutors in 2024!

We are also looking for volunteers to support our programmes.

Do you love writing?

Are you excited by the idea of working with young people who love writing?

For thirty years, Write On School for Young Writers has inspired young people to explore and articulate their ideas and imaginations through creative writing. We have built a safe and supportive writing community for keen writers aged between 6 and 18. One of the most powerful tools in our kete is an approach that recognises the multiple opportunities young people have to clarify their ideas through redrafting and shaping their words with guidance from expert writing mentors.

We employ and train emerging, experienced, published and award-winning writers to mentor and guide young writers. We are undergoing phenomenal growth and demand so we are seeking to build our diverse tutor pool. Some of our tutors have grown up with Write On. Our other tutors all wish they had!

Let the uniqueness of the child guide our work.
