Exciting news! I’m going to be writer in residence at @jesmondlibrary to help celebrate the 10th anniversary of the library becoming volunteer run.
The residency is all about inspiring and supporting people in the area to write – including about their memories of the library – and I’m looking forward to celebrating the joys of libraries, books and writing with as many people as possible over the next six months.
I’ll be running an introductory writing workshop at the library on 14 October (book your place by emailing events@jesmondlibrary.org) and I’m busy planning lots of other ways to get Jesmond writing. Feel free to get in touch if you’d like to find out more or have any suggestions for local groups who might want to get involved.
