Untold Stories Goes Live!
Untold Stories: Unravelling the Threads was an English Heritage project funded by the National Heritage Lottery.
In a series of three workshops led by Squad Core Team writer Malika Booker, poets from the Writing Squad and Barbican Young Poets traced the lost stories and roots of English Heritage sites in Cornwall, Cumbria and Lancashire.
In this video the poets share their work, along with the thoughts behind their writing process!
The Squad Poets involved were Helen Bowell, Prerana Kumar, Fahad Al-Amoudi, Gregory Kearns, Lydia Hounat and Emily Pritchard. And the Barbican Young Poets were Tice Cin, Phoebe Wagner, Amani Saeed and Simran Uppal.
And it doesn’t end here – Fahad, Lydia and Prerana are currently developing a follow up project for the Squad, using archives that are important to them as a source for new creative work. So stay tuned!
