What’s the Idea?
I’m writing a new book and looking for people to send me stories.
It’s about people who have shown extraordinary courage or kindness during a time of great adversity.
What’s the story?
I’m a professional writer, commissioned to write a new book about this topic
This new book is due out this Autumn.
So I am looking for people to send me their stories
Do you know of anyone who deserves to be included in this new book?
I’m looking for people from the 20th century through to the present day.
They don’t have to be well-known though!
Could be an exceptional friend or relative..
Examples so far include:
- British nurse Edith Cavell
- Campaigner Max Levitas
- Cicely Saunders – founder of the world’s first hospice
People should do this because…?
This is an opportunity to have your story published
The new book aims to inspire others so you will have contributed to that
You could highlight your friend or relatives achievement
It’s a great way to do something creative and practice your writing
How do you do it?
Think about anyone you know either family or friends
Or maybe someone whose story inspired you.
Write down that story on your PC or Phone
Give as much detail as possible
Particularly on why the situation was so bad or challenging
And what this person did to show great kindness
Or great courage during this time
Don’t worry about your spelling or grammar
I can tidy this up when I edit it
Then please send your ideas for this new book to:
I will then review and edit your story
And if it’s selected I will let you know
So you can keep an eye out for it when its published
Stuff you may need
Laptop/PC/Phone to write and send your story
