The final evaluation of Writing East Midlands Write Here Leicestershire Landscape residency can be heard here:
Thank you very much Natalie and Kerry for such a vital contribution to this evaluation.
Thank you very very very much to all you scapeshoppers – the work on this blog, and the recordings on SoundCloud are filled with your voices.

The produce can be listened to here:
