And her name was Revolution: an open letter to society and government...
All writers have twenty minutes to type some words - whether they take the form of a short story, a poem, a letter or just a splurge - directed at the dilema we find ourselves in.
All of the pieces will take this quote as their inspiration:
"Hope has two beautiful daughters: their names are anger and courage. Anger at the way things are, courage to make them they way they ought to be..." St. Augustine. At the end we'll collect the lot together, tie a ribbon around it, post it off to Mr. D. Cameron, 10 Downing Street, London, and await his response...

We came, we saw, we clicked and we clacked. This is the result of Writers' Room II - over 8 hours of collaboration between more than 24 writers, which took place at the Really Free School on Sunday 27th February.
Eventually it ran to 11 pages, spewed out of the Valentine and sellotaped along the bar, and we went way beyond our scheduled 8pm finish time, ending (sort of) after 10pm. The main themes seem to be cheesecake, mischief and rampant creativity.
The finished article can be seen here in it's original format, and here as a fully transcribed word document.
