Transitions 4

Pavement Pounders have each year since 2010 published and edited a journal of mainly local writings. For 2014 we decided to devote the journal to this project. We held writing workshops in the spring and summer. Transitions 4 was launched that November during The Folkestone Book Festival with readings from many of the contributors.

From the introduction

Our project mission to explore the heritage of Folkestone as a harbour and cross-channel port by looking out as well as in, provides the backbone for Transitions 4.

We set out with the idea of both retrieving personal memories of crossing the Channel and the wider aspects of sea-crossings.

Some very interesting pieces emerged.
