In this issue

Welcome to our Winter issue of ShoutAbout! 

We’ve had such a fantastic time reading your stories, poems and art. Some of you were moved to write by the World War One commemorations. Others found inspiration in the world around us, both real and imagined. 

We hope you are as impressed as we are.
