In a recent documentary, novelist Kit de Waal asked ‘where are the working class writers?’ The answer is right here.

Inspired by a shared concern that working class voices are increasingly absent from the pages of books and newspapers, Kit de Waal has come together with Unbound and the regional writing development organisations, including New Writing North and Writing West Midlands, to do something about it.

Common People will be a collection of essays, poems and pieces of personal memoir, bringing together sixteen well-known writers from working class backgrounds with an equal number of brand new as-yet-unpublished writers from all over the UK.

We went for a letterpress look, gritty texture suggesting a touch of the working classes, metallic colour palette, majoring on the contributors in the middle.
