Residencies & Retreats

NeST art gallery in Barnard Castle, County Durham
August 2013
The aim of this residency is to realise the ‘One Poem for Teesdale’ project in collaboration with Radio Teesdale.
The project aims to find the poem which best expresses the history, culture and landscape of the area.
I will be offering workshops to facilitate new writing which explores these themes.
Both poetry and prose produced will be presented in a portfolio for the 1000 Creations exhibiton in celebration of the return of the Lindisfarne Gospels to the North East of England.
See post filed under Poetry/Writer in Residence for further details.

The Morritt Arms, Greta Bridge, near Barnard Castle
Wednesday 18th September 2013
These retreat days provide the opportunity for writers of all genres to develop a personal or business project in an environment which has inspired writers and artists such as Dickens and Cottam.
The retreat runs from 9.30a.m. to 3.30p.m. The day is split into 3 writing sessions interspersed with refreshment and lunch breaks.
Participants are encouraged to network, swap books, share writing tips and ideas.
Places must be booked in advance.
