‘Voices on the Page’ was a national writing event for adults in Skills for Life learning in England. Its aim was to get everyone writing and sharing stories and poems, true or fictional, about life, love, home, family, dreams, sadness, hopes, experiences – anything that expresses what it is to be alive.
Writers sent in nearly 700 pieces between December 2006 and March 2007. Eleven award-winners were chosen, using criteria created by the learners. The awards were presented at a reception at the Institute of Education in London.
The award-winning entries are printed here exactly as they were received.
