Words Weekend 2019

Industry Insight: New Reviewers with NARC. Magazine




Are you interested in arts reviewing and journalism? Sign up for our masterclass with Claire Dupree, founder and editor of NARC. magazine and writer and journalist Mark Grainger. You’ll find out about their journeys through study and employment and learn the secrets of writing a great review. Then you’ll go out into the festival and put those skills into practice, attend events for free and write to deadline to produce the first ever Words Weekend Fanzine. Claire and Mark will be on hand all weekend for tips and advice.

Spaces are limited.

More Info:

Start: 6pm
Venue: C5

As everyone deserves equal access to entertainment, every event in Words Weekend will be accessible. In addition to the gold standard access provision at Sage Gateshead, all events will be BSL interpreted and there will be a roaming interpreter facilitating conversations throughout the venue.

Words Weekend will post a Social Story on their website for anyone who might find new situations difficult and would like to know what to expect from the festival. Sage Gateshead also offer short familiarisation visits.

We request that everyone is tolerant to the needs of other audience members,  some of whom might need to take a break from a space during an event, for example. Lighting will be raised slightly higher than usual, sound levels will be limited at most events and more comfortable seating options will be offered in some spaces.  Please remember that not all disabilities or health conditions are visible.
