Welcome to this community creative writing project from Liverpool based charity North End Writers, looking at the centenary of the First World War. This project is supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund, http://www.hlf.org.uk/Pages/Home.aspx
Have you got a picture that evokes the 1914- 1918 war, that strikes a chord with you, something you would like to write about? It could be a photo of a relative who served in WW1, a drawing you’ve completed – in fact any image of an interesting object, building or person linked in some way with the First World War.
Do you have, or would you like to write, a short piece that it inspires? This could be a letter or a poem, a short story or the recollection of a dream – in fact any form of words that you think works with your picture. The only rule is that you must own or have permission to use the image and it has to be your own original writing, no more than 400 words in length.
If you are new to writing but really aren’t sure what or how to write something, North End Writers is holding a number of workshops, where we will support you and help you to get started. The dates and venues are published on the Workshop page and more may be added so keep checking back if you don’t find one that suits.
Outreach: We also have some time available where we can come to your community group and talk to you about the project and how to become part of it – if this sounds of interest please leave a message on the About page and we will get back to you or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be publishing submissions here and also holding exhibitions of selected work at a number of community and arts venues throughout the city region.
Why not have a look at the pieces already uploaded and keep checking back to see regular updates as more work is added. You can also follow the project on Twitter – @northendwriters
So, once again Welcome! We hope you will enjoy coming here often to see stories, letters, poems and articles by Liverpool people about the impact and meaning of the war and perhaps even submit some of your own work?
Please be patient with the look of this website, like all good things it will flourish and grow over time and we value your feedback which can be left on the About page.
