Pupil at Heddon


A series of educational and community based workshops took place along the route of the wall involving people of all ages and abilities. These workshops introduced new audiences to the work of quality writing and encouraged and supported new writing from the participants. New works were created which examined historical and contemporary aspects of the Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site.

This began the process of making a new portfolio of creative writing about a World Heritage Site which is both ancient and modern - A.D. 122 to the 21st Century.
