... written reflections on the Isle of Sheppey

WANDERING WORDS is a writing project and online platform that is putting the written word on the map in Swale & Medway.

Barry was commissioned by Wandering Words to write about the Isle of Sheppey. 


Over the course o several months he visited the island, taking photos and writing poems and a story about it.


You can read his contribution on the Wandering Words website, which went live in June 2015.  


Wandering Words is developed, managed and funded by Ideas Test (which is part of Arts Council England’s Creative People and Places Programme) working in partnership with Rochester Literature Festival.

You can buy an extended version of Barry's Sheppey wanderings; The Unbearable Sheerness of Being from Wordsmithery.
