  • 10th Anniversary Anthology

    In 2015 we started an exciting writing project, celebrating the 10th anniversary of Hexham Book Festival, invited authors spent some time at various locations throughout the County, writing a piece of work either during or after their residency. We are delighted with the resultant anthology which you can read in the link below. Authors who have taken part are; Ross Raisin, Michael Chaplin, Harry Pearson, Will Atkins, Evie Wyld, Debi Gliori, Sarah Moss and Melissa Harrison, and Kathleen Jamie. Northumberland. Time and Place. This project was supported by Arts Council England and Active Northumberland. To download the e-book click here
