About Writing Interest Group (WIG)

Writing Interest Group (WIG) is an inclusive, supportive community of writers who love to write, share writing, write collaboratively and publish their writing in the group's blog, Unicorn Express

WIG welcomes all students who are interested in writing, and is not concerned with any perceived level of expertise. 

The group is coordinated by teacher librarian, Tania Sheko, and led by enthusiastic, innovative student leaders. Many forms of leadership and initiative are encouraged in the group. 

Members are encouraged to join the private Facebook group, WIG - MHS Writing Interest Group, to stay informed. The group is also a place for discussion, sharing of ideas and online resources.

The group meets every Friday at lunchtime in the GLC. Members are welcome to bring their lunch and should probably bring their laptop.

Do you want to be WIG Captain 2019? See Mrs Hawtin to discuss the process.
