‘Writing Place: Creative-Critical Conversations’ is a series of six public events organised by the new Centre for Place Writing. In each event, a Manchester Met researcher will be paired with an artist or academic from outside the University to introduce their work and to discuss the relationship between creative and critical approaches to place. Ideas and issues that will be explored during the series include the power and problems of mapping, the representation of post-industrial geographies, and the relationship between writing and music.

The third event in the series, ‘Assembly Language: Words-Film-Scores’, will be held on Thursday, 24 January 2019.

Dr Amy Cutler is a cultural geographer, curator, writer, and film-maker who is currently a Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellow in the Department of Geography at Royal Holloway, University of London.

Amy will be joined by Richard Skelton: a writer, artist, and musician who runs – with his partner, Autumn Richardson – Corbel Stone Press. Richard is also completing a PhD in the Manchester Writing School for which he has been awarded a Vice-Chancellor Scholarship. Amy and Richard will present new and recent work before discussing their environmental practices across a range of media.
