In 2018 WFL continue to encourage a love of literature by helping to fund many more education initiatives across all age ranges including:
A Poetry by Post project with poet AF Harrold (the recipient school receives a specially written poem on a postcard each week through the term, together with a visit from the poet).
Tony Walsh will be spending four days with local schools in October, and earlier in the year Inja visited Fosse Way School and the Mendip School.
We arranged a visit from the team responsible for Channel 4’s The Secret Life of Four Year Olds for Psychology and Media students, and an event with Andrew Motion for Lower Sixth and Gifted & Talented children , as well as a literature event with Professor John Mullan for Sixth Formers from eight Somerset schools.
A week of workshops in Primary schools with author Ross Montgomery
The purchase of 37 set books (Much Ado about Nothing) at St Dunstan’s School and 20 copies of A Monster Calls as part of the Exeter University Grammar for Writing project.
