An alert from the Brontë Parsonage Museum for today, April 28:
Patience Agbabi
Launch event for our Writer in Residence
28/04/18 07:30PM

We are delighted to welcome our 2018 writer in residence, Patience Agbabi, to begin her residency at the Brontë Parsonage Museum. Patience will read from and perform her work at this launch event which will set the scene for what she plans to explore during 2018.
Patience Agbabi is a sought-after poet and performer, and her work has featured on radio and TV worldwide. She studied English Language and Literature at Oxford University and is Fellow in Creative Writing at Oxford Brooke's University. In 2004 she was nominated one of the UK's Next Generation Poets.  She has published four collections, the latest of which Telling Tales (2014) - a vivid retelling of Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales for the 21st century - was shortlisted for the Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry.
Patience appeared at our Poetry at the Parsonage Festival in 2017 and we are excited to be working with her this year.
The evening is the first in a series of events co-produced with guest curator Melanie Abrahams, Creative Director of literature organisation Renaissance One. The series will see a range of writers engage with contemporary themes within Wuthering Heights, including independence, alienation and emancipation, through a programme of walks, talks, salons and events.
