Poetry residency at 'The Loft Space', Dingle, Liverpool

I have started my residency at Liverpool artist Jo Derbyshire's 'Loft Space' project in Liverpool. This exciting venture was conceived by Derbyshire as she converted the loft space in her home into her studio. Whilst Derbyshire renovates the property in Elswick Street, she has turned the renovated loft/studio into a gallery space with exhibitions running until March 2007. The timetable for the exhibitions follows:

28 January 2007 - 3 February 2007 On The Waterfront by Irene McLoughlin.
04 February 2007 - 10 February 2007 Poetry Installation by Andrew Taylor.
11February 2007 - 17 February 2007 Pastel Series by Peter Worthington.
18 February 2007 - 24 February 2007 The Place where we live -Andrew Hodge and June Rose H.
25 February 2007 - 03 March 2007 Jazamin Sinclair and Karen Henley.
4 March 2007 - 10 March 2007 City, Regeneration, Redevelopment and Waste, ACEO's.
11March 2007- 18 March 2007 Nietzsche's Urbanised Icon by Gaynor Evelyn Sweeney and Tony Knox.
25 March 2007 - 31 March 2007 Book Launch Preview.

I will be exhibiting poems that were written during two previous residencies I undertook at Liverpool Architecture and Design Trust and Liverpool Cathedral.

It is my intention to visit the Elswick Street property and space regularly throughout its duration as the Loft Space and react to it and the exhibitions by writing poetry. A publication will gather the work that is produced during the residency.
To visit 'The Loft Space' contact Jo Derbyshire direct via email: or telephone: 07946353251.
I may post works in progress on this blog.
