The Story Republic and The Writers' Block aim to develop literacy & creative writing through the arts

Either in your school or at our unique creative writing centre in Pool, we can help your pupils find a love of writing through creativity.

The Writers’ Block  – cultivating skills and confidence in writing for all ages

Based near Redruth, The Writers’ Block is a creative writing space and programme which aims to break down barriers to writing for reluctant writers and helps those more able to write at greater depth. Find out more here. 

We also now have a pop up Writers’ Block which brings the essence of our way of working to your school. Get a tiny preview of the magic of The Writers’ Block here 


Bring The Story Republic to your school!

We have developed and delivered many projects for individual schools and clusters. Projects can be designed around a specific theme, and deliver on your outcomes.

Projects can include the following elements:

  • Teacher CPD
  • Writers, performers and artists working in school with children
  • A transformational exhibition/installation at the host school or other venue
  • Workshops and visits linked to the installation
  • A cluster celebration event for parents and community
  • Opportunity to upload children’s work on to the interactive Story Republic website
  • Links to the public installations and the Story Republicans performing in your school
  • Use of specially created resources

We can customise the programme content and size to suit your cluster, so please do get in touch with your ideas! [email protected]
