Peaches and Cream

For writers, poets or spoken word artists

Are you aged 18 – 25?

Live in the North West?
Into writing poetry?

Want to collaborate with professional musicians?

This opportunity is for you.

Peaches & Cream is bringing together Northern poets and musicians to create a fresh new album of enchanting, melodic and sharp poetry underscored by original music.

The project is artistically led by Alex Braithwaite and Russell Ditchfield of Rusty Studios, produced by Jenny Pearce, and the team are looking for a writer, poet, rapper, spoken word artist or anyone who has something to say to collaborate with.


What are we looking for?

Show us what you do! Send us an example of anything you’ve written that represents your work along with a few lines about yourself. It doesn’t have to be a finished product, it can be a work in progress, even if it’s you speaking into your phone.

As part of the team of writers working on this project you’ll spend time in Rusty Studios recording your track which will form part of a new album of poetry underscored by original music to be released in summer 2021.

Complete the form below to show your expression of interest.

Deadline for applications is 5 April
