Super Power Agency and Super Power Books

The Super Power Agency is a Scottish Charity (SC046550) working with Scotland’s most disadvantaged and under-resourced young people.  Our creative writing workshops, interdisciplinary programmes, and mentoring, not only make learning fun but also helps to close the educational attainment gap. The workshops, which take place in schools and community organisations, encourage pupils to put pen to paper, build their writing skills and express themselves with confidence.

We publish everything our young writers write through our publishing imprint, Super Power Books. Whether the end result is a book, magazine, chapbook, or graphic novel, through publication our participants become published authors which helps to foster aspiration and self-esteem. All proceeds from the sale of our books helps to keep our programmes free of charge for young people.
