Our innovative book platform, Fiction Express, connects students with authors, encouraging reading for pleasure through fun co-creation of stories.
It has been designed to improve poor reading habits by exciting children about reading and turning them into eager readers through the power of engagement.
We publish books for reading ages 6+, 8+ and 10+ in weekly chapters and what happens next is entirely up to the readers; using their votes, they are able to decide where the plot goes next… and the author will bring the most popular choice to life.
Used in thousands of classrooms across the UK.
All chapters are complemented with teacher resources and activities mapped to the UK curriculum, online reading comprehension questions and students can interact with the authors through the book forum as they write the story.
Fiction Express gives teachers an easy to implement tool (even during the school year) to show how exciting and fun reading can be. The live co-creation and voting format naturally opens up lively class discussions and creates a unique level of student engagement.
