Spirit of the Hills, Northumberland Arts Association Inc was founded by a small group of artists for mutual encouragement and support. It now has over 170 members including visual artists, writers, photographers, artisans, performing artists, and patrons who live all over Northumberland and in surrounding counties. The Spirit of the Hills Writers’ Group, which initiated the radio series Word on the Hills, is an active organization which sponsors and organizes not only this set of programmes, but also the annual celebration of writers and readers, Word Northumberland. The Group meets on the third Saturday of every month for breakfast, business and to hear an invited speaker. Contact Felicity at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
