We were delighted to fund ten sessions, from September 2015, of the Write On Mexborough! group. The sessions are delivered by Steve Ely, a novelist and award winning poet. He teaches creative writing at the University of Huddersfield and also published a biographical work about Ted Hughes’s time in Mexborough.
We will be working with the group again to publish a pamphlet with material produced at the sessions. This will be officially launched at the Ted Hughes Poetry Festival, Mexborough, in June 2016.
Special thanks goes to Right Up Our Street and Arts Council England for developing the first phase of Write On Mexborough! and the Ted Hughes Project- South Yorkshire for their support.
