Giving Thanks

My Grandmother used to tell me, “It is from story that we learn many lessons in life. Without it, the world would be a terrible place to live in.” Thinking about that, I realise that I have had a love affair with story from as far back as I can remember. It doesn’t matter which persona story takes on – whether oral, on the page, on the wide or small screen, be it a musical or an enactment on the stage, I am there imbibing whatever lessons it has to teach me. Story and I happened upon the “twins”, notebook and pen, with whom we have had and continue to have many a satisfying adventure.

Praise for Inscribe

by Jocelyn Watson

As a BAME woman who has come to writing later in my life, I want to stress how invaluable and key the support I received from Inscribe has been. Having access to Inscribe has meant that I have been able to attend many workshops and events, where I have had the opportunity to meet and learn from other BAME writers and to develop my craft. Most recently Inscribe has supported and assisted me in obtaining an Arts Council Grant which means that I can fulfil a lifelong ambition to write a novel and to hopefully see it published in my lifetime.
