When I moved to the north east of England 10 years ago, I was slightly beside myself to be based so close to the Northern Poetry Library in Morpeth. It’s a fantastic resource for anyone interested in poetry and I’m really pleased to be one of the poets in residence for the new digital platform. This will involve a huge amount of community engagement, including workshops at HMP Northumberland and other venues in Alnwick. There’s a launch event on National Poetry Day (Thurs 8th Oct) from 7pm featuring readings from Linda France, John Challis, Degna Stone, Jo Colley, Lisa Matthews and Red Squirrel Press poets, so please come along!!
