Corporate Support

Sponsor First Story

First Story offers a number of sponsorship opportunities that enable companies to build an association with a successful and growing creative writing charity working across the UK with a wide range of published authors, secondary teachers and students, and the general public.  We offer branding opportunities, promotional and press/media campaigns, opportunities to attend creative writing events in prestigious cultural or academic venues, and unique employee engagement programmes.

Try our Creative Writing for Business workshops

Bring award-winning authors into your company to help foster team collaboration, explore core values and enhance communication skills through workshops that are reflective, stimulating and highly enjoyable. Workshops are led by published authors with significant experience of running workshops for business. They can be tailored to your organisation’s needs, and booked singly or as a structured programme.

All income from sponsorship and creative writing workshops goes to support First Story’s core work in schools in areas of social deprivation.

Donate to First Story or nominate us to be your Charity of the Year

A corporate donation can support the participation of a local school or schools in our programme, helping us reach yet more students and change more lives. Link your donation to your corporate responsibility programme by hosting part of the school programme in your offices, and encourage your staff to support it through volunteering opportunities.
