Gothic Yorkshire
Sarah Dunnakey, Ben Myers, Sophia Tobin with Michael Stewart.
Saturday, 1st July 2017 | 10:00 am - 11:15 am Bradford College - Dye House Gallery

The eerie moors and industrial towns of Yorkshire have inspired generations of writers. Popularised in the writings of the Brontës, the landscapes of the Yorkshire moors have come to embody both the austere beauty and destructive capabilities of nature and have long been harnessed as the perfect setting for the stark chill and menacing darkness of a truly gothic novel.
Equally, the brooding architecture of its industrial towns provide just the right amount of shadow, suggesting things unseen and unspoken that hide within the smoke.
Join event chair, Michael Stewart and authors, Ben Myers, Sarah Dunnakey and Sophia Tobin as they discuss their latest works and explain why they chose the rural north as the setting for their contemporary gothic fiction.
This event will analyse what it is about Yorkshire that has led to it becoming the quintessential setting of the gothic genre.
