Our aim is to raise money and awareness to help inspire a love of reading in children and help develop literacy skills for those without access to reading resources and activities.
To achieve this, we hope to grow a community of aspiring storytellers through a small subscription fee of £2.50 each month; providing a platform for writers to connect, tell tales and encourage discussion through creative challenges and competitions.
50% of all subscriptions will be donated to charities that support literacy and book accessibility initiatives within the UK. A free 30-day trial upon joining is available to all.
Contributions will be published quarterly to demonstrate the impact of our online writing community. The charities we support can be seen below.
Doorstep Library gives children from disadvantaged areas of London access to books and helps them to discover the joy of reading in their own homes. By becoming a member, you are supporting our work to help children fuel their natural love of stories, fire their imaginations, and encourage their appreciation of reading.

Inspire a love of reading
BookTrust is the UK's largest reading charity and reaches 3.9 million children each year with books, resources and support to help develop a love of reading. BookTrust is national in scale and works in every region of England, Northern Ireland and Wales. Much of our focus is on early years because we've learnt that starting early and involving the whole family is the best way to get children reading.
