New Narratives for the North East - Cover Image
In 2020, fifteen writers were asked to look beyond the flux and rhetoric of the current moment to capture something deeper and more lasting about the contemporary North East and its people. Through interview and extracts of their work as well as the varied sounds of the region, we discuss what makes this part of England distinct and what its future might look like.

New Narratives for the North East is a New Writing North commission with the North East Cultural Partnership, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. This podcast series was made for Durham Book Festival by Sonderbug Productions, with music specially composed and recorded in Newcastle by Jayne Dent.
