On Saturday 26th November, come along to this informal opportunity to meet our Writer-in-Residence at Fairfax House.

Our Writer-in-Residence Robert Powell will be meeting and chatting with visitors about the residency, his approach to creative writing, and about York. He will give short readings from his poetry and talk about his previous projects with artists in Ireland, Finland, and the UK.

Robert would be especially interested in hearing your thoughts about the city’s ‘forgotten treasures’ — building details, nooks and crannies, ginnels and pathways, unexpected views and green spaces — your favourite things about York that are overlooked and under-rated.

This is a free event, and everyone is welcome. You do not have to pay to come into Fairfax House – the event will be held in our separate Exhibition Space.

Robert will be at Fairfax House between 11am and 3:30pm on Saturday 26th November, and you can drop by at any point. He will give 15-minute readings and presentations at the following times:

11:30 / 12:30 / 14:00 / 15:00
