Accolades

Bill's involvements include (at least);

 

The collation and production of a photographic, musical and poetic journey through the Five Weirs Walk, a creation of Sheffield City Council. He has also created the photography for a calendar based on the above (which is now hopelessly out of date).

 

 

 

 

 

In response to a perceived lack of ‘cross-fertilisation’ between increasingly insular writers groups, the creation and organising of NETWORX, a literary organisation that was based for six years in Doncaster Arts Centre and funded by Yorkshire Arts. This was a place where, every six weeks, different writers groups throughout South Yorkshire and Humberside could meet and exchange work, perspectives, and generally learn extensively from each others experiences.

 

 

 

 

 

As a direct result of their ‘hands on’ involvement with NETWORX, a group of writers from Rotherham went on to produce the Rotherham Literary Festival. There isn’t room here to catalogue the growth and unleashed potential of many of the participating members, some of them regularly travelling 70 miles to attend. Please see pictures on site and the recording of work that took place as a workshop event.
