Introduction to Write Inspired
A 3 day introduction to Write Inspired that gives Teachers and children an unforgettable experience. Most schools opt for this option initially as it includes a twilight Inset for all staff on one of the days.
Many schools say that they want to experience Write Inspired in the classroom to understand the practical applications as well as having an overview of the core principles. This introduction gives you 3 days of Philip Davis working with classes in school as well as a twilight inset of 2 hours. It will give all staff and children a complete introduction to the workings of Write Inspired.

Using beautiful coloured stones and specially designed sounds discover the power of the imagination in this innovative and fascinating project.
This 3 or 5 day project looks at the power of imagination and visualisation. Stones are used as 'windows' into the imaginative mind. Using specially designed sounds students will create stunning poetry and story. The class will learn about how to approach creative writing in a whole new way. Developing characters that appear from the stone, 'seeing' sounds and connecting them to perceived worlds.
