The Ministry of Stories

Being a mentor at The Ministry

Wade between the jars of human snot and balls of fang floss, and you’ll reach a secret door inside Monster Supplies, the Ministry of Stories’ Hoxton shop. Knock, knock. And behind it, there’s a creative space for kids to bring their monstrous imaginations to life.

What the Ministry do

The Ministry of Stories is a writing and mentoring space for young people aged 8-18. They host workshops that give children the chance to have their writing and imaginations turned into something tangible like a book or newspaper or… a bottle of pixie tears.

Being a Writing Mentor

I volunteered in workshops with other writing mentors and illustrators to help children with all aspects of their writing and storytelling. I had to be creative, patient and excellent at working in a team of other volunteers.
