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.
As part of the our Pendle Radicals programme we have the opportunity to put forward a poem by Ethel Carnie Holdsworth for inclusion into the National Archive. Ethel is one of the Radicals our volunteer team have been researching, and she has certainly caught their imagination. We would like you to vote on your favourite poem of hers, from the following. You can vote either on our Facebook page, by typing the name of your favourite poem in the comments beneath the post about this, or by emailing the name of the poem to Faye@midpenninearts.org.uk
