Write Inspired

Beyond the blank page


What is Write Inspired?

A short film showing what Write Inspired is all about. Using footage from Write Inspired sessions held all over the UK and abroad.

What is Write Inspired?

Write Inspired develops the skills involved in the generation of ideas. This is often the biggest barrier to writing - not knowing what to write about. It inspires people to want to write and be fully engaged in it. It opens up a world of new thinking, building confidence and enjoyment even in the most reluctant writers. It develops the creative process itself moving students beyond the blank page.
