We're Writing to Say

We’re Writing to Say... is a Story Factory project that aimed to creatively document the lived experience of young people during the COVID-19 pandemic. During the shared experience of a truly unprecedented year, the project connected young people with each other: building empathy, embracing inclusion and providing a forum for them to share their stories and reflections.

Dog My dog, very smelly, as smelly as a piece of garbage. Cute as, cute as a super super cute puppy and very, very hairy. Black hair, very skinny. Why my dog is important to me is because when I am lonely he keeps me company, and he is funny.
