I was thrilled to be invited to the recent launch and reading of the anthology Talking Threads, the most recent publication from the talented North Pens. The writing group is based at Stanhope Community Centre in the heart of magnificent Weardale. Their stories, poetry and memories are largely inspired by textiles with a diverse and fascinating interpretation from each writer.
I have been privileged to work with North Pens in the past, most recently for the We are Weardale project in Summer 2017 in addition to recording their work for listenupnorth (CLICK HERE)and can heartily recommend their book for a cracking read.
Here are the places where you can buy a copy:
