Writer-in-Residence – Independents Biennial 2018 at Tate, Liverpool


Curated and written by a team of eight Writers-In-Residence, working at the new Francis Ewe’s Publishing House On Seel Street as part of Independents Biennial 2018, a temporary reading room will lay the ground works for an original anthology of writing produced by eight diverse and boundary blurring writers.

Between 20 August – 6 September 2018, Tate Exchange welcomes visitors to take a break and discover new ways of writing.

The writers have been granted a residency over 3.5 months in Seel Street, and free reign over Independents Biennial venues and artists to build new stories, soundscapes and ideas. At the mid-point of the festival their work is open to critique, addition and exchange with the public.

Independents Biennial 2018 is curated by Art in Liverpool and spans five boroughs of the Liverpool City Region. Find the full festival listings, including four public trails and four major new commissions here.

As part of the Reading Room Residency at Tate, Liverpool, I had my writing displayed  and an audio drama, Daddy’s Boy,  installed in Tate Exchange; I also organised and facilitated a creative writing workshop, and assisted in the curation of the Tate, Liverpool Reading Room.
