inspirational writing across genre, research & anti bullying campaigns
Inspirational writing records achievement, inspires and prompts social campaigns. It has a long history. The 'The Epic of Gilgamesh' is a cautionary tale from ancient Mesopotamia depicting the transformation of arrogant Gilgamesh, King of Uruk. The gods send a wild man, Enkidu, as a friend to lonely Gilgamesh and they travel the world enduring hardship but having many adventures. When Enkidu, dies Gilgamesh is distraught and through this loss learns the value of friendship and the meaning of life.
Inspirational works were popularised by early printed materials which were religious tracts. Examples are Chaucer's Canterbury Tales (c. 1400) and John Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress (1678). In the 18th century pamphlets, ballads and cautionary tales were hugely popular, sold on street corners and in coffee houses. The Age of Enlightenment drew readers away from 'fire-and-brimstone' tracts toward thrilling adventure and romance as the influence of the church waned.
In a technological age filled with rush, stress and disconnected families, InspirationWorks4U saw a demand for modern inspirational writing. We work across genre, also carrying out online anti bullying campaigns, providing self help material & fiction based on long forgotten but inspiring British historical characters.
