Bookbite was a Book Trust project from Book Trust for people over 60 that ran between 2010 and 2012.

 The Bookbite website encouraged people over 60 to discover new authors and genres, to try a range of creative writing activities and to interact with others online to share stories and book reviews.

Bookbite resources (found in our resources section) include short stories, poetry, book lists, 'How to' guides, downloadable activity sheets and competitions. You can also find lots more in the Book Trust writing section and the Books and reading section


Bookbite resources can offer:


  • Something to dip into for a quick read
  • Inspiration to write something from a letter to a story
  • Ideas to polish up some old skills - or to try something new
  • Information on where to find people who share your interest
