Richard wrote and requested a residency to work on completing his novel The Writer of Eulogies: In his words. “It’s been a little over 10 years in the making. What I would love to do is to have a week away from my everyday life to continue to bring this work to completion. That’s why I’m asking for the residency. To be in a beautiful, inspiring place where I can just work without the distractions of daily life”.
“I am tempted to say words fail but I’m not allowed that one. What a glorious visit I had at Hawkwood. I cannot thank you enough for your generosity. The artists residency was wondrous. Truly helpful and inspiring. Plus, new friends! The food! The grounds! The staff! The people! The walk to Slad!”
