Across the country in a month and a day

A journey of grief and consolation.

I had other plans for 2015, but it turned out to be the year my parents died. The following September, I picked up my MA in Creative Writing again and in May 2017 I set off on a journey from Edinburgh to Penzance and back again. 

It was a journey of grief and consolation.

While I was away I collected stories and pictures and asked people I met to send me postcards. When I was back, I wrote about it and created this piece for my MA final project.

A collation of fleeting moments with people I never knew.
