    This paper reports on a case study which investigated the metalinguistic knowledge of beginning writers. The study of eight children in their second year of school provides evidence that the children's metalinguistic knowledge is related to their writing competence. These results are discussed in relation to current research into the content and strategies for teaching writing in the early years of school
