Kids Who Write Organisation

Overview:

KWW.org believes that all children should be actively encouraged to read and write well in their own language and, if possible in other languages. Unfortunately these days’ young people are more inclined to use abbreviated language, particularly when texting. By not using correct grammar, punctuation and spelling youngsters may not be aware that this could have an adverse effect upon their future working life; much like not being able to add up. This lack of good grammar is becoming noticeable when reading the written words of younger people.

Through the writing medium a child is able to use their imagination and creativity when developing their own stories. KWW.org also believes that some children could use writing as a good way to express their emotions and feelings, especially if they cannot physically explain what they are experiencing. Writing gives youngsters an anonymous outlet in which to express themselves and by unloading their inner fears in a safe way.

Without up and coming writers the book world will diminish so KWW.org would like to see all children being shown the doorway into the joys of reading and writing. In order to help young writers develop in this craft KWW.org is developing a programme where we can call upon experienced writers, and others within the world of writing, to join us. By utilising their own experiences and journeys within the world of writing we feel these writers can encourage future generations.

KWW.org works for the benefit of children and operates with funds generated by donation, from the sale of special products and through the contributions of other individual’s time.

Aims:

To encourage young people of all abilities to become involved within the writing and other creative industries.

To develop future writers, artists and illustrators within the writing world.

To aid this development through mentoring and encouragement.

To advise young writers on how to write and express themselves.

To aid and help young writers become an Indie published author.

To other services that will benefit the future progress of any writer, artist or illustrator from start to finish.

How we Work:

KWW.org creates and develops links with new writers of all ages who have the desire to be involved in the craft of writing by offering them advice and assistance in order for them to achieve their goal of seeing their work in a published format.

Working alongside our sister organisation Pen & Ink Designs we endeavour to connect and work with professional writers as well other experienced people within the writing world: eg artists, illustrators, reviewers, editors and possibly journalists. These mentors are or must be experienced in their chosen area with a good reputation and public presence within the writing industry.

By linking up-and-coming writers with these experienced people we feel that future novelists, poets, and journalists can receive advice regarding the manner of their writing, the use of correct grammar, production of their particular written work as well as learning about artwork, editing and publishing. We do try to link with those who write especially for children as we feel they have an understanding of the younger child’s thought processes.

Safe Communications:

At the moment most of our work is carried out via the internet and so KWW.org is very much aware of the necessity to keep children safe and secure. It is therefore our policy that a child’s parents are involved and kept updated with copies of all communications and associate content in order that they are reassured that their child is safe and protected.

To achieve this all internet communications are forwarded through our secure email system where the content is vetted prior to forwarding to any child. We do not under any circumstances encourage direct contact with a child without parental consent. We also insist that no child gives a mentor any direct contact details nor does the mentor request such details.

Joining our group is mainly by invitation only although we will consider a request to join us. However, such a request means we will carry out strict reviews of that person including Police checks and other such checks. We will reserve the right to refuse such a request if we feel the person is unsuitable.
