ABOUT THIS PROJECT
The Health: From Here to Where? short story competition was launched in April 2017 by the Royal Society for Public Health and the Health Foundation.
Too often when people talk about health, their thoughts jump to issues around health care. But the picture is much bigger than this. We want to change the way we talk and think about our health, and steer the conversation towards the other factors that have an impact on health and wellbeing. These factors are largely outside of our individual control and include things like good work, housing, education, money and resources, our surroundings, and our family and friends.

To do this, we launched a dystopian short story competition. Writers were invited…

SELKIES - The Goodman of Wastness

[READ ALONG WITH PODCAST BELOW]

In Irish folklore, there are many stories about creatures who can transform themselves from seals to humans. These beings are called selkies. Or silkies. Or Roane, or simply seal people. The seals would come up onto rocks or beaches and take off their skins, revealing the humans underneath. Some stories say this could happen once a year on Midsummer’s Eve, while others say it could be every ninth night.
Once ashore, the selkies were said to dance and sing in the moonlight. Although most mythological sea creatures were considered hostile or even evil, selkies were considered to mostly be gentle beings, perhaps because of seals’ kind-looking eyes. Selkies are also seen in Scottish, Icelandic, and Scandinavian mythologies.

TOM CHIST AND THE TREASURE BOX
An Old-time Story of the Days of Captain Kidd

I

TO tell about Tom Chist, and how he got his name, and how he came
to be living at the little settlement of Henlopen, just inside
the mouth of the Delaware Bay, the story must begin as far back
as 1686, when a great storm swept the Atlantic coast from end to
end. During the heaviest part of the hurricane a bark went ashore
on the Hen-and-Chicken Shoals, just below Cape Henlopen and at
the mouth of the Delaware Bay, and Tom Chist was the only soul of
all those on board the ill-fated vessel who escaped alive.

This story must first be told, because it was on account of the
strange and miraculous escape that happened to him at that time
that he gained the name that was given t…
