Your Messages project – London calling

During the month of November I participated in the Your Messages project. We had to write a 300-word message every day of the month within 24 hours in response to one posted from the book. The project was run by Sarah Salway and Lynne Rees on behalf of Bluechrome Publishing.

Every day messages were posted from all over the world and now thirty something have been chosen to be in a booklet accompanying the new release of Your Messages. Profits from the sale of the booklet will go to a charity called Kids Company, which provides “practical and emotional support to ‘lone children’. These are children and young people who experience significant psychosocial difficulties because their parent is unable to function as a caring adult.”

I’m thrilled to say that one of my messages will be in the booklet, and I’m really looking forward to meeting the other contributers at the launch on 31st January 2007 at The Poetry Cafe in London.

A great project. A great charity. A great writing experience.
