Cornwall Gosling Initiative

What is this initiative?

At its core, the Cornwall Gosling Initiative is a literacy project for children with a focus on community. We will be running online creative writing challenges that gives kids an outlet to express themselves, bolster a feeling of community, and use what they have learned in school in another way.

It is free to enter, and anyone who fits the criteria is encouraged to try their best and enter!

Our current contest has finished, stay tuned for more contest opportunities!

Who is behind the Cornwall Gosling Initiative?

Sarah and Daniel are a Cornwall couple who have fallen in love with this city since moving here several years ago. Wanting to try and help foster the feelings that have grown in us, we decided to very literally ask people to write about it. We hope that in keeping the conversation about why Cornwall is so special to the individual, we will keep the positivity train running.
