As part of the project, weekly workshops were held with vulnerable young people in Glasgow, facilitated by Scottish based author Karen Campbell and supported by Move On literacy workers, Linda and Denise.
Everyone got a chance to write on different themes that enabled them to tap in their creativity. It was fun, thought provoking and the end result was some fantastic pieces of writing.
Move On literacy worker, Linda said “Being part of this project has been the highlight of my job over the last year. It’s great to be able to give people the opportunity to write and share their creative talent and showcase their work. A lot of the writing comes from a personal perspective which in turn can be emotional when it is shared. This has been a great confidence building exercise and the quality and delivery of the work has blown me away.
As an organisation we were able to produce a small booklet to showcase and share their work. I feel that this is vitally important to give people recognition for their effort and talent.”
