Welcome to our recovery project. We are looking for talented writers who have stories to tell about their recovery, directly or indirectly from drugs or alcohol. We will also consider submissions on the theme of recovery in a broader sense (from mental or physical illness). Through our creative writing group and mentoring, we aim to inspire artistic excellence in our writers, helping nurture talent that has previously gone unnoticed.

The end result will be an anthology of poetry and prose of high quality writing, which we aim to have published in 2018. We will also organise events and opportunities for writers to read their work.

By giving previously unheard voices a platform, we hope to help them gain in confidence, re-engage with the wider community, and educate that community about this group's immense potential.

This project is supported by Arts Council England.
