Wandering Words

Wandering Words Creative Writing event led by Maria C McCarthy. Image: Gary Weston.

We asked people in Swale & Medway what kind of creative activity they most enjoyed and they told us that they particularly loved writing and reading. In response we commissioned Wandering Words, an online platform for writing about Swale & Medway – poems, blogs, stories, memories or journalism – all are welcome as long as it’s about the local area.




To kickstart this digital library of written reflections, we commissioned professional writers, poets and graphic novelists to write about the landscape, architecture, communities and heritage of the area to be hosted on the website. In doing so we hope we can inspire others to put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard and share their work there too.
