The August/September issue of Mailout Magazine is now available, including a interview with your truly about my most recent project, Write Around the Toon. As Mailout phrase it in the intro:
‘Write Around The Toon (WATT) is a self-guided creative writing tour based in Newcastle-Gateshead, which recognises the powerful potential creative writing holds for young people. Resulting from a series of short writing residencies in cultural venues across the region Victoria Adams, newly appointed Creative Writing Development Officer of Newcastle Centre for Literary Arts and founder of WATT, speaks to mailout about the only tour where action doesn’t speak louder than (written) words.’
Publishing as a digital magazine since 1983, Mailout’s mission is to champion outstanding participatory arts in more places with more people and support a world leading community of professional practitioners. The magazine costs £3 per copy, or £15 for a yearly subscription (6 issues). Buy this copy and you’ll get to read exciting words of wisdom from me such as:
‘Writing helps us to train our minds to find society interesting, understand how other people think and let off steam productively.’
