26 Treasures

'26 Treasures' is a new project from writers group, 26.

Over the next month, and along with a selection of fellow writers from 26, I'll be selecting a single item from one of the vast and wonderful collections at the V&A museum, London.

I'll then write a poem, a story or whatever feels right in bringing my chosen piece to life. So, it's my view on the item. In just 62 words - no more, no less.

It's a wonderful project and I already have an idea as to what I'll write about. One of the amazing, Sixteenth Century, chintz fabric dresses from the South Asia room, perhaps. But, we'll see. That's just what caught my eye when I was at the V&A earlier this year.

Watch this space folks!
