Sydling St. Nicholas, Dorset

Kay Syrad

Novelist, Poet and Writer

Novelist, poet, freelance writer and educator Kay Syrad was selected for the first year of Cape Farewell’s Rural Artist Residency Programme. The programme invites artists to engage diverse, wide-reaching audiences with the local narratives of Sydling St. Nicholas, Dorset, an “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty”. Working at the frontiers of natural, social and climatic change, the artists will interrogate the inspirational resilience and social ties that form when local communities embrace heritage, sustainability, and innovation.
