Testimony: Three Poems

Overjoyed to have (over)reached our crowdfunding target for this project: a bilingual, three-part poetry comic for use as an educational tool in schools across England and Wales. Supported by Wales PEN Cymru and published by Positive Negatives, this collaboration with Cardiff-based Eric Ngalle Charles will be based on his experience claiming asylum after travelling from Cameroon to the UK, and explore the role of storytelling in overcoming trauma. Translated by Bardd Plant Cymru (Welsh-language Children’s Poet Laureate) Casia Wiliam, we will launch the finished comic in 2019.
