Where Words come to life

The Writer’s Notebook is a safe place for all learners to write safely. No rules or restrictions. A space to think and reflect on anything at all. Each notebook is different, individualised by unique feelings, thoughts, and beliefs. Here is where learners are true writers, writing with motivation and purpose.

Ralph Fletcher

“A writer’s notebook is a blank book where a writer can engage in the fun, often messy job of being a writer – practicing, listening,
playing with language, gathering images and insights and ideas. The purpose of such a notebook is to nourish the writer…
such a notebook… is one of the most essential tools of the trade.”

Fletcher and Portalupi, Lessons for the Writer’s Notebook, p.4

“When students write from experience, they can breathe those specifics into their writing- dialect, odd smells, precise names of plants- that can animate even the most tired and tedious text.”
