Welcome to ‘The Boxing Clever Fiction Factory’, the new story creation app from Alan Peat Ltd.

‘Boxing Clever’ is a game designed to help pupils to develop ‘story sense’ and understand the structural conventions of a simple linear story. The idea was first published in non-digital form by Alan Peat in the 1990s. This app is the first digital version of the now internationally popular game.
