We launched 26 Writers in Residence at Wordstock last year. The idea was simple: find somewhere to write about, spend some time there, team up with a partner, and create a written piece with sound or visuals.
We wanted people to choose everyday, unusual or overlooked places. So you’ll read about a beautiful lake where flamingos mate, an IKEA in Croydon, and a waiting room in Wellington, New Zealand.
The project is well underway now with everyone busy writing their first drafts. Our website will go live in early May, and we’re planning readings at one or more of our chosen places in June.
