I wish to develop my professional writing practice by working alongside residents/family/staff in a care home for the elderly.Using my skills as a creative writer & journalist I will work with residents teasing their stories out & linking them back to their communities. People have stories to tell & histories to reveal, linking together like maps, letters of love to one another. Residents, actively or passively, will be included. Bringing in archive materials, resources from museums/libraries I will gather a rich collection of stories. By weaving in my knowledge/experience these cartographical love letters will be performed by an actress to residents/families & audiences @ The Courtyard &The Grange.
