Co-relate has joined forces with Kent Poetry and HKD to launch the first dedicated hub of studio space for writers in Margate. With funding from Arts Council England, the Writers’ Room brings together writers and members of the wider creative community, providing much-needed subsidised workspace and peer support for anyone working with words. We want to support the local literary ecosystem to grow alongside Margate’s vibrant art scene.

What happens if you take time to stop and listen – really listen – to nature near you? That's what I asked people living near Poole, Dorset to do in two pilot Ear to the Waves workshops supported by Artful Scribe and Southampton Univerisity. Adults and young people 11 years and upwards were invited to join me to explore the Hamworthy coastline and respond creatively in written or spoken word.
