Poets, writers, artists and musicians fill every flat and house in Whitley Bay and its environs….or so it seems.

I spent almost 20 years down there in that there London place. It’s supposed to be teeming with culture but it ain’t got nothing on the North East, especially North Tyneside.

I walk out of my house and trip over writers and artists. The streets are full of ’em!

One of these writers is LA Craig. Her short story, Flour Baby will be broadcast this coming Sunday on BBC Radio 4 at 19.45
