Wordplay Press: Home

Wordplay Press

is a publishing and consultancy project exploring ways in which poetry can be brought to young people. We offer resources and support for writers, teachers and co-ordinators in the form of books and professional development workshops. Through our research we aim to look beyond current practice and imagine new alternatives.

Our first book, Our thoughts are bees: Writers Working with Schools, has become the definitive UK guide for anyone organising writers-in-schools events. Enthusiastically welcomed by teachers, writers, librarians and literature development workers, it is recommended as a guide to good practice by leading literacy organisations across the UK.

On this website you can place orders for the book, read extracts and reviews and find out more about the authors.
