Chocolate Muffin Publishing has been providing creative writing workshops with a twist, to children, young people and adults across the UK since 2010. What started off as an after school club, has now evolved into workshops with Children's hospice charities, adult learning, child and adult mental health groups and young carers. Individuals can write a story about anything they wish, from their pets becoming superheroes, to a diary of their own life. Each story is then designed, printed and published as an individual story book and presented at a unique book-signing ceremony where authors celebrate their achievement with family and friends, whilst enjoying sparkling grape juice and chocolate muffins (hence the name!) We have self-funded as a family for many years before charging a small fee from families and donations from charities. As with most small businesses, Chocolate Muffin has struggled to keep afloat during the pandemic and to keep our community projects going, we need a little help. Our workshops not only boost confidence and self-esteem, but also encourage creative writing. Over 6000 individuals and families have benefited from our workshops over the past 11 years and we ask that our projects may continue for many years to come.
