Issue 10




We have had a busy summer and now it’s time to share some of the things we have made.  So, wherever you are, plug in your earphones and …

listen to five beautiful, surreal city stories commissioned by Read Manchester as part of their Six Minutes Reads project we delivered with Manchester Literature Festival.

watch a short film we made with young Hull writers walking their city as part of Hull Libraries and Hull City Arts funded Project H, where we work with writers who may be future Squad recruits.

watch two short films – two looking for love stories – made by current Squad writers on our Make a Film in a Weekend workshop, led by Ben Wilkinson and Matt Rowan Maw.

or listen to the plays written by six Hull Young Playwrights, brought together on an Arts Council England funded project run by Squad writer Lydia Marchant supported by us and Hull Truck.

We hope you enjoy them.
