Creative Writing lecturer made poet-in-residence
Dr Kerry Featherstone, Lecturer in English, has been made the first poet-in-residence at Bradgate Park, Leicestershire.
Dr Featherstone specialises in creative and contemporary travel writing, both in English and in French, including personal experiences of landscape. “Associating writing with a particular place can be a powerful tool for unlocking memory and creativity. I’ve written poetry about landscapes that are important to me, including many locations in the UK and France, and given conference papers about the techniques that I use to combine landscape, memory and heritage in my writing”, says Dr Featherstone.
