Geraldine Green, writer in residence, Swarthmoor Hall

To celebrate her role as writer in residence at Swarthmoor Hall local writer Geraldine Green will be reading from her new pamphlet collection called 'A Wing and a Prayer'. Geraldine’s work celebrates her residency at the Hall and was written in response to her reflections on Margaret Fell and George Fox, plus her experience of growing up on the Furness Peninsula and her love of its wild and peaceful places.

Says Geraldine: "Having Swarthmoor Hall as a base from which I can draw inspiration, create new writing, share my discoveries with others through my own work and through creative writing workshops, is something to be treasured".
