Yippee! I have a micro-residency! Here:
I am thrilled – my application to work with the lovely peeps at Croome Court on their project ‘Soul to Sole’ has been accepted :) I had a lovely day at Croome yesterday, a group of artists were shown around the gardens and the house by knowledgeable guides, then we discussed plans for our character’s shoe boxes with Clare and Tom, the Creative Director at Croome. I plan to be writing two poems, one about Anne Somerset, the wife of the 2nd Earl, and one about William Dean, the Head Gardener in the 18th century.
Wish me luck, folks, just one or two poems to write now… :)
This building may feature in one of the poems… guess which one?
