We Are Writers as a literacy project

We Are Writers is a brilliant way to inspire children to write and offers them a unique opportunity to see their own writing, published in a real book.

We Are Writers helps your school

When the final books come in, children are so proud of their achievements that every parent, grandparent and family member will want a copy!

Earning free books for your school

If you create a book to sell at your Scholastic Book Fair, the price to you is €8.00 per book and you will earn up to 60% commission on every copy sold to spend on a huge range of books and teacher resources.

Every child can be an author!

Whether it's a few words or a few pages, encourage as many pupils as possible to take part. Any form of writing is welcome, whether it's a story, poem, non-fiction piece, autobiography or letter – it's up to you.

It's FREE to take part!

We Are Writers is a free service and we provide a free sample copy to check for mistakes and a free final copy for your school library. Postage and packaging are also free.


If your child's school is running a We Are Writers project, you have the chance to buy a real book containing a piece of writing by your child! Why not get involved too?
