Current Projects

At any given time we are interested in ideas which are in keeping with the values and purpose of PVP. If you have an idea or theme which you would like to have explored please let us know and we will consider the project.

Send your ideas to - we would love to hear from you.

“Recipe” project
In keeping with our “Recipe” theme we are looking for writers who have been or currently are foster parents. We are interested in the challenges faced in this important and valuable work. We would like to know why you became a foster parent, what sort of support were you offered by the child protection system, the balance between your biological family and foster children? We would like any ideas you may have to offer regarding improvements you would like to see in the system. What strategies did you use to enable you to meet the challenges? We would like to hear of your successes and what you have learnt from the experience.
We don’t expect you to be a great writer all we ask is that you put your thoughts down in writing and leave the rest up to us. We will support you and help you find the best way to tell your story.

Sexual Assault
We would like to hear from anyone who has been sexually assaulted. You can tell your story anonymously. What we are interested in is the impact the assault had on you and what are the lasting effects. Sometimes the trauma from being sexually assaulted is extreme and a very private experience. We would like to offer hope to those who have been sexually assaulted by offering the stories of those who have survived.

Workplace Bullying
The conversation regarding Workplace Bullying has increased over the past few years but there are very few places where the stories of those who have been bullied can be told. If you have been bullied at work then we are offering an opportunity for you to talk about your experience. Your story will help others develop strategies to combat bullies in their workplace.

Mental Wellbeing

We are currently seeking contributions for the second book in our "Recipes" theme. If you have experienced a mental health issue and would like to contribute to this book we would be delighted to hear from you. We are interested in your experiences of Mental Health and your recovery. You need to write a maximum of 3,000 words or if you like a poem. We are seeking at list 16 contributors at this stage. If you have any questions concerning this project please contact us. We are looking forward to hearing from you. Remember you don't have to be an experienced writer, we will help you develop your work if needed. All work is subject to some editorial changes but all changes will be done with your permission.
