Welcome to the Ministry of Stories: we’re here to inspire a nation of storytellers in the UK.


We've opened a new home for writing in East London that will offer young people free workshops and one-to-one mentoring. These will be provided by volunteers: local writers, artists and teachers, all giving their time, skills and talent for free. We want this home to both inspire and be inspired by young people; working closely with schools, so that it supports the fantastic work that teachers already do.


We think writing should be unrestricted by rules and regulations; in fact, we think you get the best results by keeping it seriously playful. It’s not just about stories either: we get excited by all forms of writing, from song lyrics to play scripts, screenplays to journalism, blogging to games, and poems to graphic novels.


You’ll be able to find the Ministry of Stories through a secret door inside the first shop in the world to supply the daily needs of monsters of all shapes and sizes. All proceeds from the shop will go toward funding our writing centre.
