Bardsey Island Observational Research Project

Welcome! Croeso!

“Hi, I’m Kathie…”

This blog was created in 2010 as part of my Masters Degree in Screenwriting at Bournemouth University. The research project focussed on observing a location for five days, blogging about the experience and writing a 30 minute film script that was to be written as if our chosen arena were a character in the story. I had never before been to Bardsey (or Ynys Enlli as it is known in Welsh) but as I discovered, there is no better place to leave an indelible imprint upon your soul than this. As a result I wrote the script ‘Being on Bardsey’ which is about a teenage girl visiting this remote island for the first time with her grandmother. Bardsey Island not only became the arena with a character of its own in my script, but has since become a major feature in my life!

I completed my MA in 2012 and I have since returned to the island several times, and it is now a place that I visit regularly to write, paint, take photographs and meditate.

To read about my research project and along the way discover more about the island, please read the blog posts from the start. You’ll find the link to the next installment at the bottom right of each post.

If you enjoy this site, I’d really love it if you’d drop me a line to share your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by!
