So that's it, I've finished my residency with George Street Bookshop – and what a pleasure it was. I engaged 100+ people over the course of several weeks, meeting folk of all ages, backgrounds and walks of life. We shared stories, went for a weird walk, made lino prints, and created new flash fiction which we then performed in the bookshop. It's been a true delight.
I discovered so many interesting stories in Glossop, from strange spectres to unexplained sightings in the local hills... you can find out more about what I got up to in this dedicated project page: In Search of The Strange. Check it out!
I'm so grateful for the opportunity and have come away feeling inspired – not just in my creative work and ideas, but in my approach to participation and audience engagement, too.
Annnnd... I've got one last thing coming up with the bookshop. Watch this space!
In the meantime, check out this zine I made bringing together a selection of flash fiction created by participants at the writing workshops: https://issuu.com/mickeypip/docs/gscb_residency_zine_green
