Tyne View by Port of Tyne Writer in Residence
Hallo and welcome to Tyne Writer
My name is Michael Chaplin, Writer-In-Residence for the Port of Tyne 2009-2012
The purpose of the residency is:
- To celebrate the history and culture of Tyneside by focusing on the river that runs through and made it what it is today.
- To stimulate pieces of writing in various forms about the Tyne and the communities that line its banks, some by myself, but most, hopefully, by the people of Tyneside.
- To provide, via this website and others means of publication, a resource base for all those interested in the past, present and future of the Tyne.
