Why “Grit Uplifted”?

In early sessions of the creative writing group, the participants were given the task of developing a name for their new group, an activity that not only gave them creative ownership but also fostered a sense of belonging.
One of the members, who sadly passed away quite suddenly during the summer of 2009, thought of “Grit Uplifted” because he felt it represented the raw experiences of life on the street that so many of them shared, but it also communicated a sense of hope and strength. For many, the name Grit Uplifted remains a meaningful way to honour his memory and his contributions to the group in its early stages.
