  • “We want to hear your voices. Woman, mother, partner, child, sister, writer, reader, Northern, British, perfectionist? What are your roles, what voices do you speak in? Do you have an accent, a dialect, words that only you and your friends use? What sounds do you hear where you live? East coast or West coast? North or South?”
