First Story - Changing lives through writing

We believe that writing can transform lives, and that there is dignity and power in every young person’s story.


First Story brings talented, professional writers into secondary schools serving low-income communities to work with teachers and students to foster creativity and communication skills.

By helping students find their voices through intensive, fun programmes, First Story raises aspirations and gives students the skills and confidence to achieve them.
