Each year, Cove Park hosts at least one international writer on a residency of up to twelve weeks. This year the residencies are between four and six weeks long and are for professional artists in mid-careerĀ  to develop their own projects within the supportive interdisciplinary environment of Cove Park. Syl Coker’s residency also brings together two valuable partnerships: one with Creative Scotland’s Creative Futures and the Writers of the African Commonwealth series, and another with the Southbank Centre’s Olympic Poetry Parnassus Project. Syl will be taking part in Poetry Parnassus after his residency with us.
