Writing Forward

Writing Forward began as a reflective exercise during my Last Tuesday writing group. Once a monthly meetup in the magical setting of Forum Books, we began meeting online during the UK lockdown. 

Writers from the group have since produced new writing. Some are emerging writers with novels out on submission. Some have never been published. Others have never shared their work with anyone.

 

Their collection of poems & essays explore things felt, dreamed and hoped for during the lockdown. The pieces consider what has worked, what hasn’t and maps out what the future may hold. In doing this, the writers have harnessed positive and, at times, uncomfortable experiences so they can start to look forward, not back. This is writing as resilience.

New work will be published every other day, starting on Monday 15th June. My hope is that the project will run indefinitely. I would love to invite you to take part. Find out more about this here

 

I hope you enjoy this work. Thank you for reading,
