Our Mission

The aim of Fighting Words is to help children and young people, and adults who did not have this opportunity as children, to discover and harness the power of their own imaginations and creative writing skills.


At its core, Fighting Words is also about something much broader and more inclusive.

It is about using the creative practice of writing and storytelling to empower and strengthen our children and teenagers – from all backgrounds – to be resilient, creative and successful shapers of their own lives.
