On Friday 20th September I’ll be leading a day of writing on Orford Ness – a shingle spit on the Suffolk coast managed by the National Trust, that is full of inspiration for writers,
“The wildness and instability of Orford Ness fascinate me, and I’ve always wanted to encourage other writers to come here – you cannot visit and not be inspired,” says workshop leader Liz Ferretti, whose novel in progress, Samphire Man, is set along the Suffolk Coast of the future, “there’s a lot to take in, so a combination of guided writing exercises from me, Antony Lyons on his thoughtful installation, ‘Sensitive Chaos’, and expert input from National Trust Rangers will open up the past, present and future of this dramatic setting.”
“Orford Ness is a microcosm for bigger themes about how humans live on the planet, and what control and intervention we have,” suggests artist Antony Lyons, whose ‘Sensitive Chaos’ installation is part of an international Heritage Futures project on landscape transformation, which includes zones in Cornwall and Portugal. “The Ness braids and weaves themes of continuous, on-going change. How we understand and observe that change, and how we celebrate it can be a powerful spur to creativity,” Antony Lyons says.
