We have seen the impact a writer can make in the classroom - how they can feed the imagination and and bring life to a story. The New Zealand Book Council connects schools with writers, but we don't have enough funding for everyone. We hate seeing kids miss out, and in 2018, we'd like to see that change!
Right now, Writers in Schools brings 120 writers into 120 schools every year. That’s about 12,000 kids being inspired through the Writers in Schools programme. Next year, together we can make that 20,000 kids! Imagine that?
Will you join our 2018 supporters to bring 80 more writers into 80 more schools to inspire 8000 more Kiwi kids across Aotearoa?
All it takes is a one-off gift from you. Sponsor a school for $400, or contribute to a school with an amount of your choice.
