Writing Wrongs Schools Project

During the course of the Writing Wrongs programme, we will be uploading resources on this webpage to support you with your writing projects.

Lacuna Extracts: Why I Write

To get you started, we've uploaded some extracts from the Centre for Human Rights in Practice's online magazine, Lacuna. These resources contain a short excerpt from an article that has been featured in Lacuna, followed by a brief discussion with each of the authors about why they write. These extracts will hopefully inspire and motivate you in your own social justice writing projects.

Resources on How to Write

In this section, we will upload resources that will help you with various aspects of the writing process.

  • In your writing, it is important that you acknowledge where you are getting your information from. See our Examples of Referencing for some further guidance on this.
  • Read here an article featured in The Guardian by author Meg Rosoff on 'Finding Your Voice'. Hopefully this will inspire you in your own writing.
