It's Writing Wednesday. There may be many good writers coming up in the next generation of young people in England. It looks like they are getting lots of encouragement. The importance of stories in the growth and creative life of children is front and centre at the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre, here. They say their vision is "to be an inspirational Museum that encourages children and adults to unlock their imaginations, engage with reading and have a go at creative writing." There's also Seven Stories, the Centre for Children's Books, here. And in Oxford they're looking forward to the new Story Museum building, here. They tell why stories matter here. And in the news, here.
