My Life, My Stories: Creative Writing Mentoring Project 2016-2017

This year, the Creative Writing Mentoring project will publish an anthology ‘My Life, My Stories’ with students from a variety of London schools being encouraged to get students to write about the stories that are important in their lives, the stories they tell about their lives. The video above explains the main points (please ignore the deadline at the end of the video, all submissions must be emailed to by mid-June 2017). The anthology will contain the following topics:

  • Words I will never forget
  • Belonging
  • My favourite objects
  • Reminders
  • When it all kicked off
  • My earliest memory
  • I wish I could return
  • Stories my family loves to tell
  • I’ll always be grateful to…
