Worn with Pride

Iworn-with-pride-front-cover-jpeg I have recently finished a project for East Cheshire Quakers. I was employed to run a series of workshops in 5 Macclesfield High Schools and to produce an anthology of the poems that resulted. The theme was ‘Conscientious Objectors in WWI’. Copies of the anthology, Worn with Pride, are available from

Macclesfield Visitor Information Centre visitmacclesfield.co.uk

Macclesfield Museums silkmacclesfield.org.uk

(The Silk Museum, The Old Sunday School, West Park Museum and Paradise Mill)

Friends House Bookshop bookshop.quaker.org.uk

Proceeds from the sale of this anthology will go to University of Bradford, Quaker Peace Studies Trust (Registered Charity No. 529095).
