“I feel very strongly that there is a move to sanitise literature because we’re trying to protect children not from, necessarily, the grisly facts of life but from their own imaginations… And the child that has been protected from Dementors in fiction, I would argue, is much more likely to fall prey to them later in life in reality.” – J.K. Rowling on BBC Radio Dec. 10th 2005
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
We strive to bring literature and creativity back into a world where children are learning slang and becoming lost into virtual realities that deny the creative use of their minds and written word. We believe that everyone should be given a chance to explore more traditional literature that we were given to read and learn as part of our educational upbringing before the internet became more integrated into our every day lives.
As our world becomes more digital our society is becoming less inclined to remember the importance of proper grammar and spelling. We feel that language and writing can still be important even online, and that the greatest books from centuries past are still alive and even more vivid than before, they will never be forgotten.
We want to bring classic literature back into our collective lives by infusing popular culture into our unique interactive stories. To bring back a sense of confidence and community we encourage the use of journals where adults and teenagers may be able to express their true feelings about their lives in a safe environment.
We assemble adult and teenage guardians to help teach new players how to integrate back into literature by coaching proper spelling and grammar structure by involving themselves in the posts of our members.
Our Principles & Beliefs:
Adults and Teenagers who have confidence in exceptional writing standards (or whom wish to become better), Respect for others, Competence, Helpful guardians who encourage Adults and Teenagers, Valuing Diversity, Valuing Creativity and Fun, Harmony and a sense of community, Leadership to help encourage ongoing creative thought.
