Writers Who Care

Writers Who Care - Showcase


Hello! We would like to invite you to the launch event for Writers Who Care, an anthology written by us, a group of unpaid carers living in the North East. This event is taking place during Carers Week 2021 in partnership with Gateshead Carers.

Writers Who Care is a collection of short stories, poems, and songs that tell our story and give you a glimpse into our lives. Since January 2021, a group of us have been meeting regularly online to take part in creative writing sessions with Liv Hunt. The aim of these sessions was to have a space where we could listen, be heard, connect and support one another. We weren’t too sure what to expect but we all knew we had a story to tell and the want to get our voices heard. And after weeks of connecting, thinking, talking, and writing this is what we have created. An anthology which gives a window into our world. And now we would like to share it with you.

As part of the event, we will be talking a little bit about our individual journeys through taking part in the programme, a viewing of a film which documents our process, a few live readings of work created during the course, and then a Q&A. We would really love for you to be there.

This project was supported and funded by Helix Arts, Gateshead Council Arts Team and Well Newcastle Gateshead.
