National Writing Day Events


Apples and Snakes loves the message ‘Everyone Has a Story to Tell’ that’s why we’re supporting with National Writing Day 2018.

National Writing Day is an annual celebration of writing designed to inspire people across the UK to get writing.

Apples and Snakes will be hosting Write Ins and celebratory events for the entire week surrounding 2018’s National Writing Day. Keep an eye on the facebook event groups and our twitter feed for some writing prompts in the run up to the Write Ins.
