This issue is all about families - their warmth, their foibles, their sometimes painful memories and their ability to rise to every challenge, whether that be long term illness or the fourth game of cards on a wet campsite in March! We are amazed with the breadth of ideas contributed to this issue.
The quality of submission for the writers competition has been particularly high so thank you and keep writing! We have celebrations for the Heywood Active Families project at Darnhill Festival on 2nd July and Scribble Festival is on 13th July so come along and meet us in person if you want to extend your passion for creative writing further. Enjoy the summer!
