Writing Hope

May 20, 2024

In the Spring of 2024, we put out a call for creative writing relating to the impact of an individual's or a loved one's criminal record.

The creative writing could be a poem, short story, script, comic strip, letter or song...

Each submission was offered a voucher as a thank you for their time and efforts.

Writing Hope was sponsored by Annie Hope, who is the facilitator of the creative writing group Writing Strong and a Next Chapter Scotland team member.

We received a wonderful selection of submissions, all of which can be accessed below:
