This inspiring article shares the story of a man who moved from his native Dublin, Ireland to the streets of Chester. Trevor MacCormack, a former homeless man, is now a published poet. Trevor talks about his experience and how he used writing to help him overcome adversities, drug addiction, and hopelessness. He is grateful for his friends and kind strangers who helped him turn his life around.
Trevor wrote poems as a way of dealing with his situation but never showed anyone until he met former English teacher Campbell Russell and his wife Ann. Ann had set up The Meeting Place project to encourage vulnerable people to see they had skills and to build up their self-esteem.
