Project: Ministry of Stories

The Story Engine will prototype an e-mentoring platform in schools to support and motivate 9 – 13 year olds in exploring and writing their own stories. Inspired by the Ministry’s successful story-making workshop, the platform will be a creative space where children discover and build their creative writing confidence, extend and enhance offline learning. It will offer children inspiration and support to develop and write their own stories – creating, for example, their own characters, settings, dialogue and plot – and the opportunity to share these with others; in their school and within the wider Story Engine community. It will test the potential of allowing participants, as with the real world story-making workshop, to take the lead in setting their own pace and outcomes. It will also offer remote, individual contact with trained mentors.
