Want to try something different?

Reading and writing can flow into each other.

We asked our favourite authors to give some ideas. Pick a dare from the Dare Generator, or book a Dare to Write? Library workshop.

Let your favourite authors inspire you to write! Ask your parents or your school to take you to see an author talk, or see if you can find an author on the radio. To find out about super fun library and author events, check out the Dare to Write? Events page for Kids and Families.
