Hi, my name is Ruth Bean and I have been member of the Huntly Writers Group since March 2006.
I have a strong affinity with both Scotland and England as my mother was born in the picturesque town of Stonehaven, Kincardineshire, and my father was born in the heart of London, Somerstown. Throughout my childhood our family holidays were spent in Scotland touring around the North-East and beyond.
Through my writing I love to invite the reader to take a step into the world were words express modern day life and situations.
In 2007 my poems were given airtime on Aberdeen's radio station ME FM along with three other Huntly Writers. Other pieces composed have been published in the Huntly Writers first publication Spirit of the Deveron in 2008 and in the Knock News regional advertiser from February 2010 to June 2010. More recently I have taken part alongside other Huntly Writers in a collaboration with Dudendance Company, Into the Woods, in Battlehill Woods, Huntly, September 2010, performing within a Woodland Orchestra led by sound artist Fabiana Galante. On 22nd September 2010 I performed along with the Huntly Writers at our own event Raspberry Ripple in the New Words 2010 festival at the Rizza's Ice Cream Factory, Huntly.
I hope you enjoy my poetry and will investigate other Huntly Writers listed on our website, our book, and hopefully think of joining our merry Huntly Writers group.
