A Creative Writing anthology inspired by the records of nurses in the First World War. In the summer of 2018, The National Archives ran a workshop for students interested in Creative Writing. Working with award winning writer, Melvin Burgess students had the opportunity to explore original documents from The National Archives’ collection, discovering the experiences of nurses during the First World War.

These brave and extraordinary women travelled the world, bringing care and comfort to those in need at the centre of military action. They implemented their medical expertise and developed new approaches to hospital care. All of the stories and poems featured in this anthology were created by our students as works of fiction, based on the records they discovered during the week. This book is a complete anthology of the created works.
