Where creativity comes to life

Voted the UK’s ‘Best Educational Provider’, the team behind Authorfy have taught thousands of children and worked with some of the world’s biggest children’s publishers to make reading and writing interactive, accessible, engaging and fun. After being inundated with requests from teachers and parents around the world, we are delighted to share our approaches and award-winning resources in a way that appeals to the YouTube generation. We give you… Authorfy.

In collaboration with our publishing partners, we’ve developed exciting and original videos in which children’s authors share their unique approach to creative writing and pass on their love for literacy. Our corresponding activity packs have been produced to inspire students to engage with the authors’ style of writing, and through the platform we’re giving them the chance to have their work read and reviewed by the authors themselves!

Authorfy can be used at school or at home, and be adapted to suit curriculum targets or the individual needs of the student. Five new author masterclasses and activity packs will be uploaded each term, plus author readings, book extracts, competitions, and much more. Join the Authorfy Army today and help us bring creativity to life!

    A fantastic resource for teachers! – The Week Junior Magazine

  • Piers Torday

    ‘Teaching literacy may make people technically literate but goals and tests do not engender a love of reading or writing for pleasure. Learning to read or write in any meaningful way can only come from encouraging a deep, innate and instinctive human hunger for curiosity, play and joy. I believe every school child is entitled to the opportunity to express themselves and develop through their creativity.’ – Authorfy Ambassador, Piers Torday

  • The Green School for Girls

    I used the first Masterclass in our Creative Writing Club, it was amazing! We are part of the army forever! Even though they are KS2 Masterclasses, these girls were in year 9 and they really loved it. – Mrs Gray, Librarian, The Green School for Girls

  • Mrs Robinson, Parent

    ‘I signed up to Authorfy about a month ago to help my son become more confident with his writing. It had an instant positive impact. He has gone from hesitantly writing ten lines to knocking out a full page of A4 in less than 28 days, and we are really enjoying it. He is spontaneously writing now and more importantly, is much more confident.’
