Hoxton Street Monster Supplies

About Hoxton Street Monster Supplies

We are a purveyor of quality goods for monsters of every kind, but due to a very inconvenient curse, all the profits from the sale of monster supplies support free creative writing and mentoring programmes for young people at the Ministry of Stories. The young humans who attend our writing programmes go through the shop’s secret door and enter into the workshops of the Ministry of Stories. For these young humans, the shop acts as a bridge between the real world and the world of their imagination where anything can happen.

Co-founded by author Nick Hornby in 2010, we help young people discover their confidence, imagination and potential through the power of their writing. We develop self-respect and communication skills through innovative writing programmes and small group mentoring for children living in under-resourced communities, working in schools, and at our dedicated writing centre in east London. We empower young people to write brighter futures for themselves through the power of their ideas, creativity and imagination.
