The writing groups

The poems, accounts and stories presented in the Different Moons book includes work from the main groups who took part in the Different Moons workshops: women, young girls and children. We have succeeded in including a few words from nearly every single one of the over one hundred and thirty participants who took part in the writing workshops, either as solo pieces of writing or joint pieces made up of lines or verses from a number of individuals in the group.


There are intimate and beautiful poems written by the Haslingden Community Link Women’s Group; defiant and tender letters and poems by young girls from two Haslingden girls’ groups; and quirky and surprising stories written by pupils from the Rossendale Valley Islamic Supplementary School, Haslingden and St Mary’s C.E. Primary School, Rawtenstall.
