If there's one thing that Anorak is passionate about, it's WRITING! Without writing there'd be no Anorak, there'd be no magazines at all, or books, or letters, or emails or blogs. The art of writing is truly something to shout about and the latest issue of Anorak is dedicated to spreading the joy of the written word and encouraging all Anorak readers to give writing a go themselves.

It delves into history to discover how our ancestors communicated, we interview Dr Finkel about his collection of diaries and finds out what is the shortest alphabet in the world. It also carries stories about a butterfly who tries to do a good deed, a profile about Sally the Smile, a diary with the Cloud-O-mobile inventor and many pages of activities and games.

ANORAK is the happy mag for kids, published four times a year by The ANORAK Press in London, and aimed at both boys and girls between the ages of 6 and 12 years old. In every edition, you will find fun stories to read, stuff to make, and plenty of coloring pages to keep everyone happy!

Since its launch in 2006, ANORAK has broken new grounds in terms of visual communication for children. Its unique format includes brand-new stories written and illustrated by contemporary illustrators, a ‘good stuff’ guide, and some fun activities. The press has been featured in the Huffington Post, GOOP, OhDeedoh, and TIME magazine. It is recognized worldwide as a publishing house that produces fun, positive, edu-tainment for kids.

"In everything Anorak does, the saccharine, fat and starch of the usual children's fare has been replaced by the true sweetness of homegrown organic fare. Extreme fun for the kids and a visual delight for all. YUM!" Françoise Mouly, Editorial Director, TOON Books Art Editor, The New Yorker

Writing trivia

The longest alphabet is Cambodian, with 74 letters . The shortest alphabet has 11 letters and it is used by the people of the Solomon Islands, located in the Pac ific Ocean near Australia.

Why is Z the las t letter of the alphab et? Because it was not used very often in the Latin alphab et, so it came last. Join the queue Z!

Your handwriting says a lot about you! Becaus e we all write differently, it is believed that the way we form letters c an reveal what we are like as a person. So if your letters are big it means you are outgoing or if you write with your letters very clos e to each other it may mean that you are soc iable.

The longest book written is ‘In Search of Los t Time’ by Marc el Proust, which contains 4,211 pages!

The Aurora Diamante is the most expens ive pen ever! It is c overed in diamonds (plenty of them) and only one is produced every year. Its price is $1,470,000 (£980,000). Better start saving quick!

Invented by a French poet at the beginning of the 1900s , a calligramm is a poem or a story where the words are arranged to create a drawing. At Anorak, we love making calligramms.

The first word ever written was ONCE. As in‘once upon at time’. Only KIDDING.

Postcards – just want to remind you ab out how brilliant they are. We love sending them and we love rec eiving them. So next time you are on holiday, send us a postcard. We will s end you one back.
