Southampton Creative Histories Writing Group Blog
The Creative Histories Writing Group met for the first time in February this year. In monthly sessions facilitated by local writer, historian and artist Nazneen Ahmed, we are unpicking some of the fascinating moments in GHT’s history and the people who have passed through it.
Each month we look at a different part of the buildings life. So far we have explored the building as protector of the realm and home to the town gunners, as well as the buildings life as a prison.
The writing and format of the sessions are inspired by the different chapters of GHT’s life: From Gun Powder to Prisoners to Painters.
Browse through a number of works in progress below which are inspired by these people and places and hear the lost voice of the tower.
