The Write a book Project enables primary school children to become real authors as they create their own books by actively engaging in the processes of writing, composing, constructing, designing, illustrating and presenting their work to a wide audience. The Write a book Project incorporates the ideals of the revised English Primary School Curriculum. The Curriculum advises that children should “write for real purposes and real audiences” stressing that “drafting, editing and redrafting is at the heart of the writing process” and encouraging the “publishing” of and sharing of a child’s writing. The Curriculum claims that “success and accomplishment will inspire and motivate them to further writing.” Through illustration, design and book binding the children are incorporating elements of the Visual Arts Curriculum.
