A Roof Over Their Heads - Project Update
For a year now, a group of six writers from the Isle of Sheppey have been meeting in order to put together a book entitled A Roof Over Their Heads.
The idea behind the project was to choose a building on the island - and there are so many to choose from, all with so much history to use as inspiration (see the 7th century Minster Abbey, or the Victoria Club, or what about HMP Elmlea?) - and to create a story based around it.
We researched, using the local library in Sheerness, looking at old copies of the Sheerness Times Guardian, taking to locals, and visiting the Blue Town Heritage Centre.
And then we wrote. And rewrote. Ad edited. And read to the group. And rewrote. And spoke on BRFM. And finally, finally, we put it all together!
