It’s so interesting reading what Ted Hughes had to say about writing, thank you. As a teacher of younger children, I really see the physical battle of writing every day - and share in it - either writing on a large paper flip with them, or on a page under a visualiser, as well as in their books when I mark. Children still write with pen and pencil at school. When they have finished, they have made something on a page that is very personal to them: their handwriting, crossings out, ink blotches etc The writing books themselves express each child: some creased and dog-eared, some somehow kept pristine, some with rule-busting doodles on by their names on the cover. None of this would be apparent if we went digital.
