There’s no better way to celebrate International Literacy Day than by celebrating with some of the biggest names in literature!
From poets to writers, child stars and influencers, we've covered them all at Young Writers and they're all part of the wonderful world of literature.
We thought we'd celebrate this year's International Literacy Day with some of the biggest names in the book world. With guest blogs, Q&As and video interviews, we've had the fabulous opportunity to talk to so many amazing people that help make the literature world so important.
This Literacy Day we wanted to share some of our favourite interviews including advice for budding writers, insights into illustration and inspiring young voices.
