Inspiring Young Writers in Harrow

teamArchie are working with First Story to set up a writer in residence in a Harrow Borough School. 

The aim is to incentivise and inspire children with ability to write but who are not able to fulfil this potential yet as they are not challenged academically. 

Looking at First Story's track record, we are very excited to start this partnership. Someone they have helped in the past, Azfa, took part in the First Story creative-writing programme at her school in Oxford with Writer-in-Residence Kate Clanchy. 

"First Story has changed my life. It has transformed me from an insecure, lost, quiet, sixteen-year-old refugee, completely embarrassed about every aspect of her identity, to a confident, defiant, ambitious, proud Scottish-African Muslim woman, who is determined to shape her future, and make life better for those around her. It has made me realise that I am significant, and that my voice is important in this world."
