Writing project to celebrate Batley and Dewsbury - with linkup to Tunisia

entry picture

Two creative writing and poetry workshops that will celebrate Batley and Dewsbury, past and present, and link up with a similar initiative in Tunisia will be taking place at Batley library later this month. Textile Towns, with poet Rachel Laurence, is a project with Batley School of Art to create an international exhibition and publication.  There will be two drop-in workshops between 10am and 3.30pm at Batley library on successive Saturdays on 13 and 20 February, and the organisers say: “You don’t need experience – we are just looking for people with a passion for telling stories. We are interested in capturing your tales from our textile towns and helping you to write about them. It’s about celebrating Batley and Dewsbury, past and present.” The project is being run in tandem with a similar project in Ksar Hellal, Tunisia, and a video conference is planned so that the participants can share their experiences and thoughts. To book a space email rachellaurence@ymail.com or just call in on the day. All levels of experience are welcome. More details
