William Fiennes, our tutor and author of The Snow Geese and The Music Room has started a writing initiative in schools with Kate Waldegrave called First Story. He told us about it whilst we were at Totleigh Barton and I wanted to pass it on, its such a positive scheme and is helping to bring out powerful new young authors. William read us some examples, that were rich with the imagery and language expected in professional writings and yet they were written teenagers. Each student involved in the scheme gets their story included in an anthology which are for sale on the First Tory website. You can also find out about donating, volunteering or even watching cricket.
