New trustees to join New Writing North

Posted by

We’re delighted to share the news that four new trustees will be joining our board from June 2023.

The new trustees are leaders from across the North East’s business and cultural sectors and join us at an exciting time for the organisation, as we move forward with plans to create a Centre for Writing in central Newcastle.

Gary Wright, Chief Operating Officer and Director of the Great Run Company, event organisers of the Great North Run, will take on the role of Treasurer at New Writing North. He will be joined on the board by Caroline Greenwood Dower, an independent psychotherapist, trainer and organisational consultant; Ian Crow, a partner at Newcastle-headquartered Ryder Architecture; and Matt Forster, an associate director and senior leader at brand communications agency Gardiner Richardson.

The four new trustees will join a board whose members are based nationally, representing leadership and expertise in publishing, education, media and the arts. Read more about our Staff and Board here
