What is Reading Hack?

“Well it’s reading subverted flipped on its head. Re-read, converted.”

Reading Hack turns reading on its head. Create your own hacks, meet new people, get skills and inspire others to read. If you’re aged 13 to 24 get involved, make hacks and do some volunteering.

What is a hack?

A hack is an activity with reading at its heart. This could be anything from a poetry-themed DJ set or novel-inspired Minecraft, to book-related filmmaking or helping others to read.

Why get involved?

Reading Hack gives you skills and experience and is a great way to meet new people and get creative. Win some awesome prizes, get involved with competitions and compete in the leaders board with young people all over the country!

Why not get involved and join hacks, design your own hacks or find ideas to lead your own hack?
