Write around the world is a digital writing exchange; the project stretches the participant's writing skills by challenging them to write a statement of values which other young people will respond to through writing a piece of fiction. Eastside has run a pilot version of this project linking a school in North London with a school in Perth, Western Australia. We are now planning to develop a social networking platform to enable ease of exchange. This will also help us to work with more young people across London, nationally and internationally. As well as stretching the participants writing skills through challenging them to write reportage, fiction and poetry; the project will also increase tolerance and understanding. We would like to link young people living in rural areas with their counterparts in large settings. We are also developing resources and filmed guides to support the writing of individuals that wish to participate and to support teachers in the classroom. At the start of the project, participants are asked to write a short essay descirbing the one value that they hold dearest. The writer also produces an image to accompany this. These essays are exchanged with other young people who write a short story in response, these are then exchanged back. If you would like more information or to support the project, please  contact us
