We Are Writers | Turn Your Pupils Into Published Authors

Important information
We Are Writers has now closed

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

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! The good news is that you can earn Scholastic Rewards for free books and raise funds for your school with every book sold.

Earning free books for your school

If you create a book to sell at your Scholastic Book Fair, the price to you is £5.99 per book and you will earn Scholastic Rewards on every copy sold to spend on a huge range of books and teacher resources.

We are Writers as a fundraiser

If you create a book for another school event, the price to you is £5.99 per book but you can choose to sell it at a higher price – £7.99 for example – to fundraise for your school.

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?


We offer local authorities, charities and community organisations the chance to create co-branded We Are Writers books. Call 0845 603 9091 or email enquiries@scholastic.co.uk to find out more.
