‘Being able to see inside a life amazed me and made me more curious.’,
Our programme for the academic year 2019/20 is currently in development. We are expanding our work through the academic year.
In addition we are beginning to explore the setting up of Extension Projects – a long-held ambition to extend the benefits of working with creative writing within the historical environment to young people who might not otherwise enjoy the possibility.
