West Lakes Writing Reading – Grasmere

20/10/2016, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

- Free

Reading of writing created by participants in our West Lakes Writing Workshops and Pascale Petit – the writer in residence, the event in Grasmere will focus on the inspiration from William and Dorothy Wordsworth.

Inspired by the richness of Cumbria’s literature traditions, Elements host a 2-month writer in residence project in partnership with Age UK West Cumbria, Florence Arts Centre and the Wordsworth Trust. For its first year, we have invited renowned poet Pascale Petit to work with a group of 60+ residents in Copeland.

After 7 weeks of workshops and day trips with Pascale, as well as writers and experts on William & Dorothy Wordsworth, Norman Nicholson, Percy Kelly, Sir Hugh Walpole and Alfred Wainwright, the work created by the participants is presented at a series of five reading events in Whitehaven, Egremont, Millom, Grasmere and Keswick during the festival.
