In June 2019, Lisette Auton and Sara Gibbeson took part in the Crossing the Tees Book Festival as Poet-in-Residence and Illustrator-in-Residence.
The Festival is in its sixth year and takes place in libraries across the five boroughs which make up the Tees Valley. Over the course of the festival fortnight Lisette and Sara attended events, held workshops and masterclasses, worked in schools and scribbled incessantly.
This collection is the culmination of their work together and includes some of the poetry produced by our incredibly talented Tees Valley pupils.
The Ink Flows Poetry Collection, as part of Crossing the Tees Book Festival, has been made possible due to generous funding by the five borough library services, Arts Council England and Northern Festival of Illustration.
