"I am a primary school teacher of ten years’ experience. When I was young, I didn’t realise that the written word were for me to use or enjoy. I was never told I was a writer.

"I want the children in my class to have a different experience."


Phil Ferguson

"I have worked in both the maintained and the independent sectors as SENCO and Deputy Head.

"I had a drive to write from a very early age. It’s my ambition for every child to gain as much pleasure and empowerment from writing as I did."

A new, dynamic and evidence-based writing approach which is genre-focused and encourages children to write for pleasure.
