Paul and Allan Gray have worked with the Headspace group leading a number of creative writing workshops from March to the end of April 2017
Paul successfully completed this course in December 2016.
James Hartnell of the Bolton International Writing Project (BIWP) approached Paul and asked if he would develop a music hall presentation, including some songs, for a BIWP event on 13th October. Paul was happy to accept and appeared at the event along with Anjum Malik. The presentation was so successful that James booked Paul to do something similar at their next events held at the Friends Meeting House in Bolton, in November and December. All the events were a great success.
Earlier in 2016 Paul submited work to the Woody Guthrie Folk Festiva which was to be held in Oklahoma (woody's birth place) in July 2016. Though the work was accepted Paul didn't receive an invitation to attend this event until early June but, after a lot of thought, he still decided to attend. Woo hoo!
Below is a photo of the Art Gallery where the event was held and a photo of Paul performing inside.
