Calling All Writers!! May opportunity to showcase your talent!!

Hey Everyone,

Just a quick scribble about an up-coming writing opportunity.

Diary for a Day – Tuesday 12th May

The Mass Observation Archive is looking for everyday people to capture their lives on Tuesday 12th May 2015. The diaries will be stored in the Archive at The Keep and be used by a wide range of people for research, teaching and learning including academics and students, diaryschools, writers, producers, artists, community and special interest groups and the general public.

In 1937 Mass Observation called for people from all parts of the UK to record everything they did from when they woke up in the morning to when they went to sleep at night on 12th May. This was the day of George VI’s Coronation. The resulting diaries provide a wonderful glimpse into the everyday lives of people across Britain, and have become an invaluable resource for those researching countless aspects of the era. May 12th 2015 is likely to be quite an ordinary day, but for those researching, the ‘ordinary’ can often provide extraordinary results.
