I went to the Bett Education show last month and I am always looking for things that will enhance children’s passion for literacy.
There is so much MORE TO BOOKS when they children are writing them for themselves.
I came across the Mighty Writer and could immediately see how it would support and enhance sentence structure, SPAG but also widening speaking and listening and vocabulary.
From an in- home educator as a nanny and a tutor, I love that there are downloadable, printable options too.
I interviewed David about Mighty Writer.
How did Mighty Writer come about?
Emma, my wife, was a primary teacher. When we got married, we were looking for a business to start together. She told me that its difficult for children to learn literacy and difficult to teach literacy. In my arrogance, I thought this is something we could resolve. Since undertaking an MBA 25 years ago, I was a user of mind maps. I thought the idea of using images and symbols was key to making literacy easy for children.

What is the best thing that the children learn from using Mighty Writer?
Th biggest impact is the children’s engagement in literacy. It turns a difficult process into an easy, fun activity that immediately gets results for them.
What is next for Mighty Writer?
Our mission is to transform the literacy of every child on the planet. This may seem like a dream, but Mighty Writer is very capable of achieving this.
