Green Wobbly Things, Dancing
Today sees the launch of the very first Ministry of Stories anthology of writing, 'Green Wobbly Things, Dancing'.
The Ministry is a free space for fresh writing by young people, and opened in November last year (read all about it on our blog post); and since then has been running school visits, as well as drop-in sessions after school and on Saturdays. This anthology collects together some of the brilliant work from the kids who attend those sessions, and features stories, poems and comics of every description, all of them fantastically imaginative.
We designed the book, which is printed and bound in-house at the Ministry using a photocopier and wire-binder. The covers are pre-printed in red, leaving space to be customised for each anthology (and they're also used for notebooks for the school visits). Big thanks to the good folks at Robert Horne for providing all the stock.
