Exploring the ethos of writing for fun through Dare to Write?, Bambo Soyinka has worked with many experienced Affiliates to deliver Dare to Write? inspired events and workshops in schools, libraries, public venues and more. Each Affiliate – be they an individual or an organisation – has received a badge of affiliation to run Dare to Write? inspired events, through a scheme run on similar lines to the Summer Reading Challenge.

If you are interested in receiving further training or enquiring about workshops with one of our Affiliates, please contact us via this form or at

Current Dare to Write? Affiliates include Bath Spa University, offering training in the Dare to Write? Ethos, and the town of Corsham, a pioneering Dare to Write? Destination where residents, venues and arts venues have come together to champion the art of writing. We have also offered a badge of affiliation to three individual author-tutors: Chris Vick, Philip Monks and Alice Maddicott, who have trained with us and piloted Dare to Write? in schools.

StoryHive, the creative enterprise that provided the original impetus for this project, is leading on the delivery of all distribution aspects of Dare to Write? (including the platform, notebooks, incentives and resources).

If you’d like to become a Dare to Write? Affiliate, head to our Affiliates Scheme page to find out more about how you can be involved.
