The Mansio



This is The Mansio. It’s a modern architectural take on a ancient Roman stopping place.

This summer it’s travelling along Hadrian’s Wall and in it you can watch a film about – or listen to the audio of – a short story that I wrote, ‘The Bloody Bell’, while in residence in rural Northumberland in December. There’s a print anthology coming out soon too.

I’ll be talking about it up there and walking on the wall in July.

Other writers involved include Colette Bryce, Malachy Tallack, Lemn Sissay, Kathleen Jamie, Daljit Nagra, David Almond, Kyra Clegg and Kathleen Jamie.
