Roald Dahl Museum Poet in Residence

The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre’s mission is to inspire in everyone a love of creative writing and reading using the Roald Dahl Archive, his stories and his life. We seek a variety of ways to engage children, families and life-long learners with books and creative expression both at the Museum and through outreach work. Our Residency programme forms a fundamental and exciting part of our mission.

From November 2013 to February 2014 we would like to work with a poet to continue to enrich Roald Dahl’s legacy. The poet will be involved in the delivery of a number of projects, including workshops to students in targeted Buckinghamshire schools, and family events at the Museum during school holidays. The poet will also have five days set aside to work on their own piece of writing. We would love the poet to spend time working in Roald Dahl’s chair in our replica Writing Hut!

Deadline: Monday 19 August.
Interviews will take place in the week beginning Monday 2 September.
