SFS—Established in 1912 to educate English-language children in the heart of Seoul, South Korea. The British arm of the school (Seoul Foreign British School) wanted to create a glossy book of student writing to celebrate the institution’s centenary. It was important for every pupil to contribute a poem, story, essay or article. To this end, writing workshops were held in every class to support and inspire children with their creations. The result: a gorgeous collection of pieces written by 350 students aged 4 to 14.
The brief: To create a collection of 350 stories from pupils at the Seoul Foreign British School in South Korea. The project involved running writing workshops (two for every class), organising student contributions, editing stories and formatting the finished pieces into a large hard-back book, complete with original artwork.

"The book we now have in our hands would not have been possible without your creative inspirational mind, your dedication and your love of words. You are a talented, gracious lady with many gifts that you have shared with each of us in the British school at various times throughout the two years you have been in Seoul. It has been our great pleasure to work with you—an experience we won’t forget. You gave the children and adults who contributed to the book the confidence to just write."
