About Young Writers

Young Writers, which is part of Bonacia is well known for its innovative spirit, and it is always supporting customers in any way it can. One of the initiatives is working with young people, to encourage them to develop creative writing skills, and to support teachers by providing free, time-saving resources. The teen market is a tough one to crack, but they are potential members of our industry in the future, so to encourage interaction with print is brilliant!

This year, the theme has been Survival Sagas. This includes a series of 'missions' that could be linked across the academic year, or the packs could be used as standalone activities.

From a great concept, Young Writers needed to enthuse these young people, so the contents of the packs had to appeal. So, the company developed Mission Contamination, Mission Catastrophe, and Mission Chaos, with imagery and ideas that young appeal to young people. The design flows through the packs, the web pages, the videos and right through to the finished printed books, which Young Writers create of the students' work.

Survival Sagas has already inspired over 40,000 students to get thinking and writing.

Congratulations to Young Writers on their Earth Island Solution Award for Innovation!
