We have A LOT of things that go out in the post, from books all over the UK to bookmarks to schools, Sarah oversees it all

We had a chat with our delightful Despatch Manager about another aspect of Young Writers that not everyone may know about...

Hi Sarah! Could you tell us what you do here at Young Writers?

Hey! I work closely with the whole Young Writers team ensuring everything from your poetry/story books to certificates are sent out to you and arrive safe and sound.

Tell us about yourself, your hobbies, what do you like to do outside of work?

Outside of work I love to spend time with both of my grandchildren, we get up to all sorts together and have the best time. I also love to bake which is fun! Sometimes I even treat the rest of the team and bring in the occasional cake.

What’s your favourite thing about Young Writers?

My favourite thing about Young Writers is that we encourage children of all ages to write and be creative. Seeing all of the books get despatched, knowing they're going to excited young minds is always the best. They're going to a loving home and every parcel is going to bring someone so much happiness!

What is a typical day in the life for yourself?

There is no typical day for me, that's what is fun about working in Despatch! Every day there are different things that need sending out or sorting. You never know what you are going to get! So it always keeps you on your toes and excited to tackle the next challenge.

What's your favourite book of all time?

My favourite book is To Kill a Mocking Bird, classic!

Thanks for taking the time Sarah! If you want to find out a little more about the rest of the team here at Young Writers, you can check out our other Meet The Team blogs here and meet us all.
