Tell Us Your Stories
As soon as A Little, Aloud became a real thing and went out into the world, people began to tell us how they would put it to use and I wished that we had included a message inside the book asking readers to get in touch about where, when and to whom they had been reading aloud. Thanks to the wonder that is the on line social network it is not too late and we have set up this website in order for you to tell us your stories.
We want to know all about your experience of reading and using the anthology. We would love to know which of the stories and poems you have read out loud; how you found that experience and how the person or people you read to received them. As well as shared reading we will then be sharing the experience of reading together.
Whether you have been reading to a friend or partner, to someone in hospital or in a care home, or perhaps a reading group, we hope that reading aloud together – sharing the stories and poems has given you something you might not have found in private reading. If so please write about it here.
