Bringing Words to Life (BWtL) is a literacy charity based in Blaydon, founded by a published journalist and author. Having piloted a programme in a Gateshead primary school over a number of years, the engagement of the children through this alternative platform of learning led to the development of Bringing Words to Life. The intention has always been to engage as many young people as possible with the processes, skills, and attitudes they need to enhance their literacy. The work that has been delivered thus far has proven successful with those young pupils and adults who are a) significantly underachieving, and b) in danger of dropping out of the system, or have left school with few qualifications/GCSEs. This is down to engaging with different tools, enhanced by technology, and enriched by building on the experience of a journalist.
