Congratulations to Hay Writers’ Circle member, Emma van Woerkom who has a number of poems included in the “Letters for the Sea, Letters for the Land” project from Culture Weston, Weston-super-Mare.

Poems and texts from 18 poets have been selected and placed on the glass partitions of the newly refurbished Victorian seafront shelters, as well as poster boards along Marine Parade and Weston’s long promenade, with more poems due to appear in the coming weeks.

As Culture Weston writes, “A compelling miscellany of site-specific, word-based artworks, installations and audio works inspired by the sea, coastline, landscape and environment, people and place – to read and enjoy at leisure. 

Seafront shelters, Marine Parade + Poster Boards along the seafront 

Look out to sea and take in contemplative words and reflective sentiments through the windows of the seafront shelters, and upon poster boards along the promenade. Featuring poems and texts by local artists, poets and members of the ‘Chapter One’ and ‘Rhyme Against the Tide’s’ creative writing and poetry slam communities. 

Featuring words by: Lorna Bryce, Sylvia Buckler, Anne Bunn, Ariee, Leonie Hart, Annie Higgs, Sue Hill, Sam Francis, Adam Leppard, Andrew McBride, Alison Mckay, Malcolm Rodgers, Sophie Shepherd, Ade Thomas, Bill Thomas, Emma van Woerkom, Bob Walton, Shobi Warwick.”
