Bringing Words to Life is a literacy and journalism charity. We believe that the more opportunities young people have to express themselves, the more of a voice they will have. Nothing hones writing skills like knowing that somebody cares what you have to say.
That’s why we started b**p. b**p is a newspaper written by young people, for young people. Our writers know what they are passionate about. They know what their peers are passionate about. With a little encouragement, b**p has borne witness to some incredible feats of journalism. Our writers have covered sports, music events, film, cinema and theatre. What’s more, they’ve also covered politics, feminism, activism and education.
We want to see today’s young people grow into a generation of confident, happy writers.
We are interested in hearing from young writers all over the country – and even beyond!
It doesn’t matter what interests you may have or whether you have any experience. If you think you’d like to give writing a go, drop us an email at [email protected]. We’d love to hear from you!
