CAFOD has launched a new creative writing project for young people, with the intention of capturing their thoughts and feelings as we emerge from the Covid-19 lockdown as part of the Catholic aid agency’s Summer of Hope campaign.
Award-winning Catholic author Frank Cottrell-Boyce is supporting the project.
To take part, young people need to say in one word or one sentence what has given them hope throughout the lockdown. Suggestions include an object, an activity, a person, a phrase, or an idea, and those taking part can use pictures or designs to illustrate their words.
Children’s author Mr Cottrell-Boyce said he is delighted to be a part of this CAFOD project.
“We are living through an extraordinary moment in history. When our children grow up, their children and their children’s children will want to hear what life was like during the pandemic of 2020,” he said.
“So, this is a great way to capture future memories and to help children realise the importance of what they are living through.
