Research Project

This collection of eleven short stories by both young and established writers drew on the research of the Pathways programme for inspiration in creating a fictional narrative. The idea to transform some of the stories which the researchers uncovered during the research process into fiction grew out of a desire to reach a wider audience in demonstrating the change and conflict women encounter within their lives. The stories were developed through creative writing workshops in which different aspects of writing were debated, life stories from the research shared, and draft fictional stories were presented and discussed. The hope is that by producing this volume, these stories of ordinary women and their daily struggles, which often languish as research documents, will reach a much more diverse public.
