Our Radicals research team have been electrified by the story of the great Ethel Carnie. Project leader Janet Swan considers Ethel’s brief time in London, and how we are now inspired to rename the Pendle Radicals blog in her honour…
Writing with a Mission – One We Can Continue?
Thanks to Pendle Radicals, I have learnt about the amazing Ethel Carnie Holdsworth. I have also had the opportunity to become involved in groups reading her work, and work with song writers who have taken her poems and turned them into songs. When the personal stories start to flow* as a result of this further work, it makes me feel glad that we may be continuing something that was very important to Ethel.
You will find the rest of Janet’s blog at our Rebel Pen Club blogsite.
