Creative writing space & charity monster shop

The Ministry of Stories is a local writing and mentoring centre in east London, where anyone aged eight to 18 can come and discover their own gift for writing. You’ll find us hidden behind our own fantastical shop Hoxton Street Monster Supplies. Through a range of innovative writing programmes, and one-to-one mentoring, we help young people discover and realise their own creative potential. We build confidence, self-respect and communication skills in both workshops for schools and out-of-school writing clubs. Then we provide a publishing platform for young writers, so these fresh, exciting voices are shared with the world. It’s rewarding work. But it’s not easy. We depend on the whole community for their support, including a network of more than 500 dedicated volunteers. (You could be one of them.)
