National Memory Day helps to support two sub-projects that run throughout the year.
The Memory Café Poetry Project brings together professional writers with people affected by memory loss and their families to create new works around the theme of memory. [link to projects/memory café]
The National Memory Day Creative Writing Competition is an open call for submissions from writers of any age and background to submit a story, poem or free-form piece of creative writing. The winners of each category will be announced at National Memory Day on May 18th 2017. [link to projects/writing competition]
