Didn't the Poetry 20+ group also meet for a time at the Hartington Road  site of Leeds Adult ed? Or was that another group? Would be very early 80s, prob 82, and Mary Williams was there.

Think that was another Mary - Mary Cooper - The Women's Writers Group / WEA course that met at the WEA / Durham University site in Hartington Rd (Stockton). Leeds Uni was south of the Tees and Durham Uni North of the Tees don't forget. Will sort the problem of the interview not showing if I can!

what does position of the tees have to do with it?

Durham University's area stopped was North of the Tees and Stockton is north of the Tees and so the old university (and WEA) centre of Stockton - where Mary Cooper ran the Women Writers group / course was Durham University as opposed to the Middlesbrough centre at Harrow rd - South of the Tees which was run by Leeds University adult ed. Mary Williams ran Poetry 20+ at the Leeds centre and Mary Cooper at the Durham Uni centre.
