Sudden Collapses in Public Places Julia Darling
Song cycle based on Julia Darling's critically acclaimed collection of poetry, Sudden Collapses in Public Places.

Heathcliff Adrift
Heathcliff Adrift Benjamin Myers
Commissioned by New Writing North for Durham Book Festival, Heathcliff Adrift is a series of narrative poems, first exhibited alongside stunning landscape photographs taken by Nick Small.

Conceived while walking the moors of the West Riding in Yorkshire, the work considers the questions: where did Emily Bronte’s eponymous anti-hero go and what did he see? It explores the idea of what happened to Heathcliff during his ‘missing’ three years in Wuthering Heights, an era in which the industrial revolution was in its earliest days and the ragged beauty of the landscape was under threat from the arrival of mechanisation. Further themes include nature, violence, survival and the changing seasons.

Haggs and High Places
Haggs and High Places
A shared passion for peat provided the impetus for a collaboration between artist Laura Harrington and physical scientist Jeff Warburton. Their joint project focuses on Moss Flats, an upland peat flat in the North Pennines, and involves an exploration of this dynamic and lively ecosystem through words, film and sound. The book, Haggs and High Places, brings together their work, with poems by Josephine Dickinson, to explore and illustrate the pull and experience of Moss Flats.
