Writers in the park

christine banham 2008Local writer, Karen Hill-Green, has worked with her fellow Creative Writing MA (York St John) students to collate beautiful new written pieces. So far seven pieces have been created, inspired by Rowntree Park, by being outside and by the wonder of nature. Each of these pieces (poems and prose) can be ‘found’ in the park itself, by looking for small cards with QR codes on benches scattered through the park; just scan the codes with your smart phone to read – for free, thanks to our new WiFi coverage! Follow this link, to find out more, and to read the poems and prose on line, from the comfort of your own home. Alternatively, there is a printed copy of all the pieces in the Reading Café, just ask at the counter.

The written pieces are a lovely addition to the park, which we hope local people will enjoy. All the works are copyright of the writers and of the Friends.

    The project inspired Rose Berl, one of the Friends, to write this piece:

    Once my playground, swimming pool.
    Now my garden shared with flowers, birds, children.

    The past and future forgotten walking in this haven.
