HAY Creative Writing Workshop -Black Chiswick through History

My sister and I joined the Creative Writing Club being run by Mrs Kyriacou and Hounslow Action for Youth [HAY] Charity. Through this we were given the opportunity to join Chiswick House's 'Black Chiswick through History' project. We were invited to write poems about the culturally diverse styles of the house and interpret its features through our creative writing. Out of 17 young people who participated in the project, our poems were selected to be displayed within Chiswick House. Furthermore, on August 24th, my sister and I will be performing our work at Chiswick House and it will be published in an anthology.

We found the experience really insightful and enjoyable. We are so grateful for the opportunity and we would love to do it again.
