DBF for Schools – Festival Laureate

Andrew McMillan’s debut collection Physical was the first ever poetry collection to win The Guardian First Book Award. The collection also won the Fenton Aldeburgh First Collection Prize and a Northern Writers Award. We are delighted to have Andrew at the Durham Book Festival 2017 as our Festival Laureate.

Free workshops
As part of Andrew’s residency, we are looking for talented students from across County Durham to take part in FREE creative reading and writing workshops. These workshops will be lead by academics from Durham University and Andrew himself and will take place at Durham University in September 2017.

If you have students who you think would benefit from taking part, please contact Lizzie Nixon at New Writing North at lizzie@newwritingnorth.com or 0191 204 8850.
