Write on the Tyne current projects

I’m delighted to be involved in two local projects, both with phenomenal north east services.

Walking in the Footsteps of Walker Women is a project delivered by Pottery Bank Community Centre, funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund. Write on the Tyne has been commissioned to teach creative writing and is assisting local women to tell their stories. The stories will share how the community in Walker and Byker has changed over time and how women’s roles have altered and adapted over the generations. The book will focus on strength and resilience of both the community and the women in it.

Pottery Bank will launch the anthology in August 2023.

Write on the Tyne is also working with the phenomenal substance recovery service, Recovery Connections. With sites and services across the north east, Write on the Tyne is supporting people accessing the services to share their voices, and create poems and prose around addiction and recovery. We will be creating an anthology that will raise awareness around the complexities, challenges, and trauma of addiction as well as celebrating sobriety, abstinence, and recovery.

Recovery Voices will launch in September 2023, to coincide with UK Recovery Month.
