A Rendezvous with Julia Darling ten years on
New Writing North is working with Julia Darling’s friends and family, the BBC, and Live Theatre to mount a series of events in 2015 to honour the tenth anniversary of her death. There will be more news about events in the new year but writers who knew Julia might want to book tickets now for Rendevous 2, as it’s on sale and tickets are already selling well. The event will be an evening celebrating Julia Darling’s writing, featuring poetry, fiction, extracts from plays, and live music performed by many of Julia’s long-time collaborators, performers and friends including The Poetry Virgins.
New Writing North will also be announcing the winner of the inaugural Julia Darling Travel Fellowship, a new award to support a writer to travel and write, which we will be launching in January. If you knew Julia Darling and would like to create an event that could form part of the celebrations please get in touch by emailing [email protected].
