Creative writing with Scribeasy

Scribeasy is a computer program that uses storyboards to get you writing. It helps you to tell your stories with pictures, suggestions, themes and lesson plans.

Scribeasy is easy to follow and has 7 steps that help you through the writing process from start to finish:

Scribeasy has hundreds of pictures and multi-sensory tools to help you with ideas about what to write about. You pick a background, some characters and objects to set your scene, and then start writing.

As you write, you can choose sounds that help you set your scenes, watch and play videos that teach you how to tell a story, and get writing tips. There is support from a digital thesaurus and spell check, and you can also get help if you’re dyslexic.

Take a look at some stories in our Scribeasy library.

Scribeasy records your progress and shows you how you have improved as a writer. It also rewards you with skills badges.

Scribeasy is for everyone and can help you whatever your learning style is. Outside of school, you will get better at asking questions, thinking, working on ideas, being creative and experimenting.
