Yearly Project

Write a book Project 2013

J.D. Salinger, the author of The Catcher in the Rye, said:

What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it.

Those of you who wrote, edited, shared, read and discussed the books understand what it means.  

Now, have a look at some of 2013 books.

Looking forward to next year!


"Congratulations to everybody.  You did all a great job.  Awesome authors of the year."

"Congratulations and many thanks for a lovely evening.  It was so well organised and must give such encouragement to young people"

"What a thrill to win!  Thank you!"

"Microphone tricks were great this year! Greatly appreciated.  Sorry I won't be here next year"

"Fantastic event, well done to all involved"

"An evening to remember"

UPDATE: 14th March 2013

The Write a book Project is now on its next phase, getting ready for the Ceremony on 22nd April.

So far, all the books are back in the Centre, Merits packed, and the rest sorted out by schools.  If you want, you can come and collect these packs but, remember, you will still have to come back, after the ceremony, for the Merit books and the certificates.  

I know that some schools have parents' days and they want to show the books the children made.
