Description of impact

Based on my research and publications on Portsmouth ghost lore, I am working with the Portsmouth Writers Hub and other local creatives to produce an anthology of fiction relating to the supernatural and the uncanny in Portsmouth. I will work with a member of the Hub to co-edit this book. The book forms part of Portsmouth DarkFest in October-November 2016.

Who is affected

In the first instance, local writers, artists and film makers. The proposed activities in autumn are intended to promote a broader cultural engagement with these ideas among the diverse creative communities within Portsmouth and, more broadly, the local population, encouraging people to rethink and re-imagine their urban environment. The month of events will also have an impact on a number of local businesses and organisations.
