Have you got a story to tell? Are you part of the Enhanced Protection programme OR a Frontline Worker? This writing opportunity could be for you.  

WoW and Culture Liverpool are providing free creative spaces for communities to reconnect, share and write, and we want to hear from you.  

The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted how important community is and the benefits of connecting with others and sharing our stories.
