"I began the residency, symbolically,
by attending the Advent Carol Service on the 28th November
2005 and completed it during September 2006. As well as pursuing my own creative
work, I have created opportunities for other writers
to become involved with Truro Cathedral as a uniquely
inspiring presence in Cornwall. If you are interested in any aspect of the residency, please do get in touch."
