This year’s National Writing Day takes place Wednesday 21 June 2023.
Head over to the First Story website for the annual celebration of writing for pleasure and self-expression. As usual, First Story has laid on free activities to inspire your creativity. Share your writing online using #NationalWritingDay.
Roll the dice
The theme this year is ‘Roll the Dice’ by poet and First Story writer John Berkavitch, inspired by the 15th birthday ‘tombola poem’ created by attendees of the 2023 Young Writers Festival. You can use random words and number generation to spark your creativity.
