New What's Your Story?

Are you currently unemployed? Do you have an interest in writing and a story to tell? Would you like to enhance your skills? If the answer is yes, then read on…
 
Writing on the Wall are thrilled to announce that we’re launching a new and exciting What’s Your Story? course beginning this September which will be specifically aimed towards unemployed people who want to improve their skills. The course will cover a range of written genres including short stories, novel writing, script writing, poetry and writing for children. Course participants will be taught and supported by some of the finest local writers in the area. All for free!
 
 
Interested but need some more inspiration? Just think, before J.K Rowling reached multi-billionaire status following the Harry Potter book series, in her own words she was ‘jobless, a lone parent, and as poor as it is possible to be in modern Britain, without being homeless.’
Could you be the next J.K Rowling superstar? Then get in touch and let the world know your story.

Mental Health & Me


Literature’s love affair with the mind is an age-old tradition where creativity has always been closely entwined with mental distress, yet the subject of mental health is still widely considered a taboo subject. We hope that this competition will challenge the stigma around mental distress and promote social inclusion by giving entrants the opportunity to explore this topic using traditional and/or alternative forms of writing.

Has mental distress affected you or someone close to you? Are you particularly interested in the subject of mental health?  Are you a carer or have you worked with people suffering from mental distress and want to share your experience? If the answer’s yes, we’d love to hear from you!

Liverpool’s Mental Health Consortium in partnership with Writing on the Wall, is launching a writing competition to mark World Mental Health Day on Friday, 10th October 2014. We are inviting you to send us an original written response under the theme of ‘Mental Health and Me.’ You can send us a poem, a short story, a diary piece or a blog post, a letter, a piece of journalism or even a tweet, yes – a tweet!

Literature is no one’s private ground; literature is common ground; let us trespass freely and fearlessly and find our own way for ourselves– Virginia Woolf

One in four people, like me, have a mental health problem. Many more people have a problem with that. - Stephen Fry
