The Project: 

Creative writing students at a school of the arts and ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) students from 11 different countries took memories of their hometowns and shaped them into finished stories and essays. Their work is now featured as part of the interactive Story Map on our Hometown Stories website—click here to explore the site and enjoy their work. In the future, we expect to take this project to many more cities in many more countries.
