Dockers, dramas and the power of writing

On the latest episode of the Stored Honey podcast, Mike Morris of Writing on the Wall in Liverpool shares three things he's getting excited about right now

Mike Morris, co-director of Writing on the Wall, shares how writing can be used to transform communities. He gives us a sneak preview of the organisation’s 25th annual literature festival, WOW Fest: Fahrenheit 2024, and picks two other things that are firing him up right now.

I met Mike in Toxteth Library, a grade-II listed building which inspired Scottish-American businessman Andrew Carnegie to fund more than 1,000 libraries, including 660 in the UK and Ireland.
