Overview

This marvellous new anthology is a collection of pieces written by secondary & primary school students from a varied range of London state schools. Having been given the theme of 'My Life, My Stories' by Goldsmiths' Department of Educational Studies, these pupils wrote movingly about their lives, dreams and ambitions in the form of poems, fictional extracts and autobiographical accounts. They were assisted by their teachers as well as creative writing post-graduate students & PGCE English students at Goldsmiths.
Many of these young people wrote about the idea of 'belonging', a particularly apposite leitmotif in these times when many of those living in London feel so uncertain about their identities and futures. The anthology lifts the lid on what it means to be a young person in Britain, and reflects the creativity, industry and diversity of our ebullient capital city.
The book is not only required reading for anyone who wants to learn about young people's lives, but it's also a wonderful resource for teachers who wish to inspire their pupils to write in a similar vein.
