Welcome to Simply Cracking Good Stories
Simply Cracking Good Stories is a Newcastle University collaboration between creative writer Margaret Wilkinson and second language acquisition specialist Martha Young-Scholten to create short, engaging and accessible fiction books for adults in English and to make these available in a range of other languages. Simply Stories readership includes beginners learning a second language, immigrants with little or no schooling in their home language just learning to read in a new language and those who have suffered a stroke or have a form of dementia.
Simply Stories is a grass roots initiative. We work with talented creative writers and artists at Newcastle and elsewhere to produce narratives and with linguists make sure the texts are easy to read.
