Wild About Writing is organised and run by Dramatic Impact. We are a husband-and-wife team living in Halesworth, Suffolk with our two sons. We love stories, we love nature and we are very excited about helping as many children as possible to get (quite literally) Wild About Writing!
Wild About Writing is more than just a short story writing competition. It’s an invitation to children and their families to get outside, to explore and enjoy the amazing natural world around them and to use that experience as a jumping off point for writing a story. We hope that taking part will help children see the countryside in a new light as well as giving them a chance to find the fun in writing for pleasure.
Wild About Writing is just one of the things that Dramatic Impact does. We produce all sorts of exciting, engaging, often theatrical events and experiences that entertain, and inspire.
Together we have a wealth of experience in the creative arts including theatre, radio, live events and writing. Having worked in London and further afield, we now enjoy living and working in East Anglia and particularly love taking inspiration from the beautiful Suffolk countryside and stunning heritage coast.
