The Write Offs

“Working on The Write Offs has been one of the great honours of my working life.  It will change what you think you know about reading and writing. I believe the ripple effect will be astonishing.“

Imagine not being able to read a text message, the destination of a train, or use the internet. Five million people in Britain wake up to that reality every day, with 1 in 5 adults considered functionally illiterate. 

The Write Offs, an empowering and uplifting new two-part series hosted by Sandi Toksvig will explore Britain’s staggeringly low adult literacy rates and offer a group of adults – aged from 22 to 66 years old – a lifechanging opportunity to overcome the one thing that has always held them back.


The Write Offs will air on Channel 4 in 2020.
