I believe passionately about literacy and sharing the power of writing with all. There are so many wonderful charities who further these causes, but here are two that I both feel passionately about and have been lucky enough to work with.


First Story

First Story supports and inspires creativity, literacy and confidence in selected secondary schools in the UK, where more than 50% of children are considered ‘deprived.’ For further details, please see the website.


Write Yourself Alive

Write Yourself Alive! is a 30-Day Writing Challenge + E-Course that has helped thousands of Writers + Word Warriors get unstuck, jumpstart their creativity, take their passion seriously, turn writing into a priority, and connect with like-minded creators worldwide.
