Bronte Parsonage Museum

Katrina was the first writer-in-residence at the Bronte Parsonage Museum in Haworth, West Yorkshire. She ran events for National Poetry Day for adults and children, held workshops for the Together Women Project in Bradford and wrote poems in response to the Brontes’ work, home, landscape and personal effects.


Her poems were published by the Bronte Society as Charlotte Bronte’s Corset and the museum put on an exhibition of Katrina’s writing. She also performed alongside Carol Ann Duffy at the first Bronte Festival of Women’s Writing and ran a special workshop for the festival. Following on from the residency, Katrina ran a Bronte-themed Arvon course at Lumb Bank for the Calderdale and Ilkley Young Writers groups in February 2013.
