Welcome to Literatureworks, an initiative to help establish healthy reading habits for young learners in South Africa. The main ‘ingredients’ we use in our work are personal encounters, play and creation. Literatureworks believes that inspired readers are made through the creation of confident writers. This is why the active creation of homemade stories is imbedded in all the work we do. We acknowledge the need in South Africa for a modern and tailor-made approach to help more learners become inspired readers. To be able to do this we develop specific products and workshops that will encourage reading in the home environment.
