Crikey! I feel like I really have joined the 21st Century (albeit kicking and screaming!) now I'm doing a blog.
I'm going to use this blog mainly to keep a log of what I'm doing for the Pennine Watershed project that I'm writer-in-residence for. And to let you know about events and stuff related to it.
So far I'm going to be running workshops for Saddleworth Museum, Cliffe Castle Museum and Hebden Bridge Arts Festival. With HBAF I'm working throughout June with groups of elderly residents from two care homes and also a lot of local skateboarders - to bring them together to share their experiences of watersheds in their lives, and also to take them out on the moors to write!
I'll also make kites with some groups and get them to compose poems, write them on their kites and then fly them on the moors - should be fun, and nice and colourful too.
