Write Around the Town
Write Around The Town is a creative writing tour of Newcastle-Gateshead produced by 20 new and emerging writers via residencies in the city's top 20 cultural institutions. With the backing of the NGCV Group, the Newcastle Centre for the Literary Arts, and the AHRC, the project aims to encourage and inspire audiences and members of the public to take part in exercises and events in each venue. Writing about the venues by the residents will be gathered together in a project website and a booklet. The hope is that public engagement through creative writing will become a long-term benefit to each institution and its audiences, sparking off new ideas beyond the initial scope of the project.
Stevie Ronnie is undertaking a short residency with Dance City as part of the Write Around the Toon Project led by Newcastle University. He is a writer and artist and his work could be described as poetry of one form or another.
