Launch: Experimental Writing Group

6 – 8pm

Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art

Art Network North East and Corridor8 are launching a new experimental writing group in partnership with Baltic’s Artist Development Programme. 

Join us for a sociable toe-in-the-water event with Corridor 8’s Regional Editor Lesley Guy, Adam Pugh (Art Network North East) and Niomi Fairweather (Curator (Local), Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art), to share ideas about writing. Pizza and drinks included.

Aimed at both critical and creative writers, artists and curators for whom the written word is part of their practice, and those who are just curious, this initial meeting aims to find out whether a regular writing group would be useful to those based in the region.

The group is itself an experiment, and its future form will depend on what participants identify as being most beneficial. Whether you write already, or are interested in ways to get started, please join us on 9 November!

This event is free to attend but please book so that we have an idea of numbers.

This event has now sold out, but you can add your name to the reserve list by e-mailing We’ll recontact all attendees to confirm attendance on the morning of the event, so can add any reserve bookings then if possible.
