Please tell us a little bit about yourself.
I'm 37 years old; Aquarian; itinerant wanderer; adventurer; artist. I'm renovating a property in France at the moment. My previous jobs include artist, chef, teacher, builder, carpenter/boat fitter, deck hand, narrow boat skipper. I aspire to be a writer of successful radio, TV drama and comedy.
What is your story about?
It takes the form of an apology to my late mother who suffered terrible misfortune throughout her life. She passed away before we had the opportunity to put the memory of unhappy events behind us.
Why did you choose this particular story?
I read somewhere that you shouldn't chew on anything that chews you back.
What did you find most rewarding about the workshop?
Meeting all the participants and the team. I'm especially grateful to Gilly - the story circle facilitator - for her remarkable support in dealing with a very emotionally draining subject.
