Creative Writing – Scottish Book Trust

The Scottish Book Trust have published a CPD resource which can be used by practitioners to support the teaching of Creative Writing. Check out the information below:


“Join author and illustrator Nick Hesketh in this highly practical video series, packed full of suggestions to get your pupils writing!

Ostensibly aimed at reluctant readers and writers, these videos are full of tips and classroom strategies which can often be applied across a wide range of age and ability. Many of them are accompanied by downloadable guides and classroom resources to help you make the most of the activities mentioned in the video.

As Nick points out, “Creative writing underpins so many activities, it’s difficult to know where to stop.” We hope that you and your pupils leave these videos feeling energised and fully convinced of the rewards that lie in creative writing!”
