All good stories start somewhere….
"Absolutely sensationally amazing"
"I would like to figure out how dreams are created…"
“I like the poem where you could find a lion under your toast. Maybe I could find a shark fin in my glass of milk!”
"It made me feel like I want to draw and write more."
"Safe and relaxed, the Scribblers Festival was the best!"
This feedback came from youngsters who attended the inaugural Scribblers Festival of literature and arts for young people. Children who opened up new worlds: of words and writing and books and podcasts and pictures. Worlds of ambition, imagination, self-belief and storytelling. Children who met leading authors and poets and illustrators and came away saying… I want to do that too.
We launched our inaugural Scribblers Festival in May 2018 to nearly 10,000 wide-eyed kids, parents, and teachers. Learn more about who we are, why we're here, and how we celebrate the magic of storytelling.
