The Youth Life Project is looking for people of all ages and backgrounds to submit stories, poems or artworks that reflect their own young life experiences for inclusion in a compilation entitled Our Story.
The project aims to restore the faith lost in young people and equip them with the skills required to make positive life choices.
Profits from the book will support the charity’s activities on behalf of Wiltshire’s young people.
Explaining the idea for the anthology, Youth Life Project founder Danielle Brown, pictured, said: “Our Story is part of the YouthStories campaign, providing a channel through which people can communicate their thoughts, feelings and experiences.
“Our Story will help bridge the gap between young people and adults, and give the young people a platform to have their voice.
“The stories from older people will show the youth how they have dealt with things in the past and demonstrate that someone out there has been through similar situations.”
To be considered for inclusion in ‘Our Story’, mail entries to: email@example.com
They can take the form of letters, short stories, artist’s impressions, case studies, newspaper articles, comic strips, a poem or however you best express your feelings. Entries must be true; include a title and your age.
