Salena Godden, Former Writer-in-Residence

‘First Story fills me with hope, hope for new books, new poetry, and an inspirational authorship of the future. We live in such strange and uncertain times, I feel the role of the writer and the reader, is more vital than ever, and the nurturing of new voices more important and compelling than ever. In these pages there are the beautiful dreamers, the writers that will document our today and our tomorrow, our hopes and our dreams. These are the writers that narrate our time here and now, and our hopes for the future.’
