Beyond Words 2017/18

Jane Bailey worked with the students, meeting in inspirational spaces for creative writing workshops.

It’s helped me make friends I wouldn’t have had and the writing course has been phenomenal – my confidence has gone through the roof.


The workshops were re-created virtually to enable access for students unable to attend the workshops in person.

University of Gloucestershire Illustration undergraduates responded to the students’ brief to create the art work for the front cover, and Photography students took photographs inspired by the students’ writing.

Some of the students came with their parents to the see their Anthology hot off the press!

The Anthology was launched at Waterstones, Cheltenham.

Watch these films to hear students at the launch talk about their experiences of the project.
