During the autumn of 2016, Mac Dunlop was writer in residence for 6 weeks at Trelissick House, as part of the ‘A Place to Write” project. The aim of the overall project was to encourage visitors to find inspiration and their own creativity in the house, gardens and history of the place.
A Place to Write was managed by Kernow Education Arts Partnership through its flagship project The Story Republic. Solarium comprises some of the poetry and anecdotes Mac collected and wrote during that time. It also includes a poem by the St. Austell poet, Sheila Fermor Clarkson.
Solarium has been acclaimed for its depth and humour as well as its wide range of subject and style, with descriptions like ‘rich red rust’ and ‘untamed unwild and unbegun’. One poetic monologue,’The Orangery of Wounded Knee’ in particular seems to have hit home for many people.
