I’m excited to be working with Manchester City of Literature on a new project called Stories of Gorton.
We are looking for people who know and love Gorton to work on a new project, exploring and sharing Gorton’s stories. We are recruiting six, paid ‘investigators’ to meet once a month over five months. We will explore Gorton by walking its streets and sharing the stories we know and the ones we discover along the way. In the final session we will look at how we might grow the project, to share and collect stories more widely.
The sessions will run 10.00-12.00 on the 2nd Saturday of the month from September 2022 through to January 2023. Each session will involve an hour long walk (rain or shine!) followed by an hour at Gorton Library having a cuppa and a chat (and maybe doing some writing). Investigators will be paid £50 per session and need to be able to commit to at least four out of the five dates.
