A BRONTË-inspired collection of new poems will be launched in Haworth this weekend.

Grace McCleen wrote the poems after being inspired by her time as writer in residence at the village’s Brontë Parsonage Museum.

The book, Every Sounding Line, is illustrated with images captured by Grace on her walks to Top Withins, reputedly the setting for Emily Brontë”s novel Wuthering Heights.

Extracts of the poems will be displayed as text installations inside the Parsonage Museum alongside the Brontë exhibits that inspired them.

The exhibition will run until the end of the year, and the book can be bought from the museum shop.

Every Sounding Line will be launched during the Brontë Festival of Women’s Writing, which runs from Friday, September 9 to Sunday, September 11.

The event features workshops, discussions and guided walk. A

Museum arts officer Lauren Livesey said: “Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë were pioneers of women’s writing and continue to inspire contemporary literature in limitless ways.

“Our festival continues to grow and we are thrilled to be working with novelist Tracy Chevalier and literary magazine Mslexia to present a really varied and exciting programme in Charlotte’s bicentenary year.”
