Creative Writers project

Creative Writing Brings Generations Together

Independent Arts' Creative Writers project has been incredibly productive in recent months. During the summer term, they connected with four primary schools and five local libraries to work with children on creative writing projects.

Children at Hunnyhill, Wroxall and Lanesend Primary schools on the Isle of Wight have been creating poetry and flash fiction around the theme mythology, and the Independent Arts team have been delighted to read stories about magical realms, mythical creatures and adventurous journeys.

Meanwhile, Carisbrooke C of E have been working on a Magic Doors project with the residents at Fairview. The children visited Fairview to share their pieces and enjoy cakes and conversation with the residents.

In addition to Fairview, a number of other local care homes and supported living schemes have been involved in the Creative Writers project, including Kinloch Tay, Little Hayes, Furze Brake, Byrnhill Grove, Old Charlton and Newport Abbeyfield.


All of the pieces that have been created will be included in a printed anthology which will be launched in September this year.
