Writer’s Residency: Day 8

August 27, 2013

Today I have been compiling poetry entries into chronological order for the 1000 Creations exhibition.
Poets from across Teesdale, North Yorkshire and Teesside have been inspired to contribute new work which evokes the atmosphere, landscape and history of Teesdale past and present.
They have encapsulated the flora and fauna through the seasons and flow of the river Tees.
They have written about manmade features such as the dry stone walls, field barns and spoil heaps, and attempted to capture the beauty of the dale.
Interspersed in the collection are poems by two lead miner poets whose work is echoed in the modern day verse.
The portfolio will be on display in NeST gallery, 25 Newgate, Barnard Castle, Co. Durham from Sunday 1st September.
Members of the public are invited to read the entries and place an orange dot on those they feel express the history, culture and landscape of the area.
We will count up the dots on the 22nd September and announce the favourite during radio Teesdale’s book programme on the 26th September.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank those poets who have taken the time to contribute work for the exhibition.
