Halloween has crept up on us and we're excited! Check out our amazing resources and fun activities to celebrate this spooky season

October provides the perfect writing inspiration, from pumpkin-spiced lattes, falling leaves, changing seasons and ending with Halloween, we've used this opportunity to create some fun writing resources to celebrate this wonderful time of year!

The perfect Halloween poetry guide

Have you checked out our how-to guide for the different types of poetry? Walking your young writer through acrostics, colour poems and riddles, this one-stop shop is great to teach them how to write their favourite poem in a spooky manner. Why not get them to try re-writing a poem in a different format? Give it a go and check out the guide here.

Trick or treat poetry competition

Have you heard about our Halloween poetry competition? There's prizes up for grabs including a creative writing goody bag and bookstore tokens too! Get your writers to create a poem that'll give us a fright before November 1st and they'll be in the running to win a great prize. Find out more about the competition and send in entries here.
