INKSPILL 2016 Guest Writers



We are delighted to announce our Guest Writers for this year’s online writing retreat, INKSPILL. We are now in the 4th year and cannot wait to bring you an action packed programme this weekend.

This year our Guest Writers are all poets, the INKSPILL programme (as in previous years) will cover a range of genres.


Guest Writers:

This year we are joined by three incredible writers they are:

Robert Harper

Robert Harper is the founding editor of Bare Fiction Magazine and artistic director of Bare Fiction Theatre Company. Robert is a poet and runs the Shrewsbury Poetry Stanza.

Gaia-Rose Harper

Gaia-Rose Harper was shortlisted for the Shropshire Young Poet Laureate in 2015, and in October 2015 was named one of the Foyle Young Poets of the Year.

Roy McFarlane

Roy McFarlane is a former Birmingham Poet Laureate. Roy’s debut collection ‘Beginning With Your Last Breath’ is published by Nine Arches Press.



INKSPILL is a non-profit venture, so we are hugely grateful to Robert, Gaia and Roy who have all given their time freely to Guest this year.
