Wordsmithery project shortlisted in Kent Creative Awards

Cover of An assemblance of judicious heretics.

The book!

Wordsmithery was one of three Finalists in the Publishing category of the Kent Creative Awards 2016 for the book of last year’s lit art project – An Assemblance of Judicious Heretics.

This is the second year we have done this project, but the first that we published an anthology. The project works as follows: we anonymously give written texts to a range of artists and they will interpret the text in whatever medium they chose. 32 writers wrote texts and their words were interpreted by 35 artists. The writing and pictures was displayed in an exhibition. For 2015 the topic was inspired by ‘The Road not Taken’ by Robert Frost.

 The exhibition was shown at Rochester Library through September 2015, with a launch event, where the writing/art collaborations were revealed on Thursday 3 September 2015. We love arranging this sort of large scale literary collaboration, this year’s theme for the project is Shakespeare – watch this space for more info!

The book contains all the text and images in full colour.

A few copies are still available to buy from the Wordsmithery website.

Update: Congratulations to the Winner, WOW magazine.

2015 – a few highlights

Winner Culture Design AwardsI had been taking a break from this blog while I set up a website for Wordsmithery, my business, but I’m now updating it again. So here’s a few highlights from 2015.

Wordsmithery won the Literature category in the Medway Council Culture, Design and Tourism Awards in October 2015.

My play MY MIND IS FREE about human trafficking secured an Arts Council England grant and toured London and the South East to good reviews and complimentary audiences with Rah Rah Theatre Company.

I wrote two short plays for Icon Theatre’s Youth groups, SHIPSHAPE SHENANIGANS and SWAMP ROMP, which were performed in Medway.
