This website is dedicated to writing by working-class people, their political struggles and their accomplishments.
Britain is a class-ridden society, and social class remains a determining feature of life.
Historically, the working class have made up about three-quarters of the population, although the representation of their experiences has been conspicuously absent in literature. Material hardship has prevented working-class people from articulating their history, having neither the time nor the literacy to write. Women have furthermore had to contend with housework and childrearing.
Therefore, it is imperative to highlight working-class writing, recognise working-class people's experiences and achievements, and write them into history.
This website is complicit in this quest.
