AS THE EASTER HOLIDAYS CAME TO A CLOSE AND THE SUMMER TERM STARTED, THE ENGLISH DEPARTMENT AT CHRIST COLLEGE HEADED OFF TO NORTH WALES AND THE TY NEWYDD WRITING CENTRE.
Set in beautiful Llanystumdwy not far from Cricieth, Ty Newydd is the National Writing Centre for Wales.
Head of English, Mrs Janet Hope and English Teacher, Dr Gareth Evans, took a group of keen Year 7 writers to stay at Ty Newydd for a residential writing and poetry course. The group enjoyed several glorious days of readings and workshops and benefitted from the expert guidance of novelist, Tiffany Murray, and poet, Peter Sansome.
Workshops took place in the centre and inspiration came from Ms Murray and Mr Sansome as well as trips to the beach and walks in the beautiful surrounding countryside.
It couldn’t have been a more perfect start to the Summer Term!
