Social History

Have you lived all your life in one place and have some great memories of the change to your location, or do you remember growing up in the 30’s, 40s etc. and you can let today’s generation know what it was like? Did you work in a long lost industry, an iconic firm like ICI or work in service for a local grandee? Did you attend the local grammar school, knocked down in the 60’s or work in a hospital before targets and qualifications were de rigour? Were you the Mayor for a few years and want to let people know what it is like?

Any of these subjects and more could be the basis for your story, whether it is about you personally or someone you know. Up to 80,000 words for a narrative, but if you have some great photos then that would make it even better.
