Narrating the North

Narrating the North is the name for a project I am working on, which seeks to celebrate, explore and ultimately prove the importance of independent literature in the North, whether that’s bookshops, the work of community libraries or the presence of poetry or creative pursuits that keep voices alive.

A Work In Progress

I’m looking for stories, poetry, creations: things that could help me to demonstrate the importance of independent literature in the North. Whether that’s poetry about how bookshops make you feel, how library spaces have changed your life, or how grime can change community perspective, I want to hear about it.
