An Educational Writing Platform

We connect a writing community, teachers, authors, students, parents and celebrate pride purpose and progress. We transform students writing in classrooms into digital and printed books, to share with an audience. Our programs include rich teaching resources connected to the curriculum, for primary and high school. We ignite engagement, drive purpose and individual learning outcomes.

Why Co-author ?

Students create new relationships with authors, not only as readers but as writers… as co-authors.

Who's working with Littlescribe

“The secret to being a good writer is making trouble.
If you are good at making trouble for your characters, you’ll be good at writing.
So let’s make some trouble! ” 

There is a dinosaur in my bedroom… trouble has arrived.

"The best part about Oliver Phommavanh's books is the comedy! I like that he is very funny and his books contain a lot of comedy and rib-tickling jokes. His books are hilarious and make my friends and I laugh."
