Museums and writers

Latest MP looks at residencies and workshops
Writers and museums are both in the business of finding, creating and sharing stories – so there is a natural synergy between them and an opportunity to work together.

The latest edition of Museum Practice explores the different ways museums have partnered with writers and poets, and some of the mutual benefits that have ensued.

The articles include information on finding writers, and practical advice on running residency programmes and educational workshops with writers.

There is a wide selection of case studies, from creating story trails to creative writing with schools and excluded audiences.
