What happens when we walk? How do writers engage with landscape? How can walking the dog help you to write a novel?! Tony Williams leads a ‘creative walk’ along the River Aln, to see how this physical activity can help us think and write creatively. Participants will be asked to take part in a (not too scary) creative activity as they walk. Followed by refreshments and a poetry reading and talk about the Romantic poets, about dog-walking as a rich and valuable practice, and about the way we do and don’t take notice of the world around us as we walk.

The walk is free, but normal admission charges to the Museum apply. Please book a place by emailing tony.williams@northumbria.ac.uk, or just turn up on the day. Refreshments provided. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear. Conditions are variable and the ground can be wet and uneven. Dogs welcome.
