In 2014 Carers UK ran a creative writing competition asking people to share their experiences through the medium of poems and short stories.
The organisers and award-winning poet, judge Cheryl Moskowitz, were overwhelmed by the repsonse which saw over 300 entires submitted, each revealing a unique glimpse into the world of caring – told by those who care.
After the judging announced several winners and highly commended entires, Carers UK supporters and staff also selected a collection of their favourite pieces.
I was delighted to be asked to design the anthology, which was printed to take the touching and intimate collection to a wider audience. Using the artwork of textile design, and carer, Daphne Sanderson and a clean symmetrical layout, it was an honour to translate the exceptional submissions into a printed format.
The finish 92-page anthology is now available to buy from the Carers UK online shop.
