Rebecca Sharp's headshot

Rebecca Sharp is a writer whose work includes plays, poetry, prose, visual and collaborative projects. Her guiding interests are in working across artforms, and making work that explores ideas of landscape and place especially concerning Scottish locations, culture and history. Her play The Air That Carries The Weight (Traverse Theatre: Stellar Quines theatre company) explores the life and work of Argyll writer and archaeologist Marion Campbell, set alongside a contemporary, fictional story about friendship and time.

Rebecca's prose work Little Forks / Forcan Beaga is set in Tighnabruaich and tells the story of a brother and sister who revisit their childhood holiday cottage to repair a historical rift. Little Forks has been presented in English and Gaelic as a live literature performance.

Poetry includes Five Charms for the Potingair, a boxset of poems and essential oil scent-blends, and Unmapped, an exhibition and publication of poems and paintings with artist Anna King.

Rebecca regularly designs and delivers workshops, gives readings and conducts events in a range of contexts. For several years she has been involved in the creative learning project Journeys into the Literary Landscape with Falkland Centre for Stewardship and she is currently on the Board of Scottish PEN.
