August is Friends and Family month for HYOC2020 and is also traditionally Herts Pride and to celebrate, HYOC2020 will be launching a creative writing competition as of Wednesday 29th July to encourage Hertfordshire residents to tell us about their version of family and what it means to them. The winning entry will have their story turned into a short animated film which will be published on Herts Memories, the Hertfordshire Community Archive. We have also managed to secure a guest judge in Hertfordshire born Nicholas McInerny, successful screenwriter and host of the Rainbow Dads podcast. We’re encouraging as wide an interpretation of ‘family’ as we can and would love to see entries that reflect the real diversity of family groups, whether they be biological or otherwise, that exist within the county.
