Poetry Competition - Judges report

As part of our year long celebration of the life of Craven legend and poet Tom Twisleton, Settle Stories ran a poetry competition for young people in the area.

Celebrate Craven !

At Settle Stories we take great pleasure in the rewards that our work locally, and in the wider community, yield. We hope we celebrate the whole of that community, in its wonderful, colourful diversity. 

Standing up for creativity in rural communities

“Everybody should have access to great art and storytelling. This is something that's at the core of Settle Stories. We're in a tiny rural town with circa 2,500 people. Yes, this has its advantages. It's a beautiful part of the world. There's a great sense of community. BUT access to the arts here is very limited.
