Central line Stories web pages relaunched

In 2009 I spent 6 months as writer-in-residence on the Central line, a commission by Art on the Underground. It was a fantastic experience, giving me the opportunity to meet a huge range of people from across the line, from tube drivers, to station staff to managers, and to create new work through different kinds of collaborations. I spent 5 days,┬átravelling the entire length of the line, writing a 7,500 word story with 55 members of staff. I wrote two new short stories inspired by conversations and journeys with tube drivers. I collected a whole range of fantastic stories about how staff got their names, and I created an online, non-linear story pulling together the key themes of the residency. Art on the Underground have just relaunched the project web pages as part of their Central line Series. I am most excited about Across – the non-linear story written specifically for the web and which is available to read in its online form for the first time.
