Inspired by the Heart of Conflict exhibition – looking at Cornwall in 1914-18 – this session will allow you to discover tales and write stories that, until now, have never been celebrated.
The exhibition looks at events across all classes, and affecting all lives: from conscientious objectors to stretcher bearers, the home front to the front line, the Women’s Land Army to the Nursing Yeomanry to the Munitionettes. From inventors to industrialists to factory workers.
You’ll uncover a wealth of material that will lead you to create a short story… perhaps the first of many.
