Writer’s Notes

THE MINISTRY OF STORIES

Writer’s Notes is a notebook for writers, containing ‘advice on how to write well from the experts at the Ministry of Stories’. Our experts were aged between 9 and 13, and the notes they provided were remarkable. Disruptive, direct, and full of anarchic simplicity (Exactly what you need when you get stuck writing). All the design needed to do was follow their lead.

The book was initially commissioned by The Story conference, as a gift to their guests. It is now available for sale in the Hoxton Street Monster Supplies Shop.

The Ministry of Stories is a charity that aims to inspire young people through creative writing. Founded by Nick Hornby, Lucy Macnab & Ben Payne, and operating out of the Hoxton Street Monster Supplies shop, they run workshops and provide one to one mentoring to local children.
