We’ve currently got three writers beavering away in communities, listening, talking, writing, and dreaming big ideas.

 Ellie Brammar – A Walk in the Park

A joint commission between Back to Ours and First Story, A Walk in the Park sees Ellie spending time in East Park and talking to the people who wander, walk, and exercise their pets there.

Ellie is a Hull-based playwright, well known for her work with Middle Child Theatre Company.


Vicky Foster – Derringham

Renown Hull poet and performer Vicky Foster is spending time at Derringham to research and discuss themes of water, seeing where conversations lead.

Looking at the rich history of the area, Vicky will devise a trail that leads the community back to Fred Moore Library, unearthing new stories along the way.


Christina Lewis – Rainbow Gardens

A hidden gem off Endike Lane, Rainbow Garden is a hidden oasis of a community garden. Now in it’s 20th year, Back to Ours has commissioned Christina to work with the residents to commemorate their incredible work over the past two decades.
