It’s snowing outside. I’m getting just a little concerned about tomorrow’s readings at St Cuthbert’s Church hall (5 Lothian Road, just behind St John’s Church on the corner with Princes Street) as part of the 'Poetry at the Great Grog' reading series (different venue this month, but still an 8pm start). I just hope people persevere and make it through the snow.
I’ve had a good look at the venue. It’s excellent and should provide a brilliant atmosphere for the poetry. With readers like Tim Turnbull, Jane McKie, Andrew Shields and Alan Gay, it’s bound to be a memorable evening. But that snow… Will it put people off coming? I hope not.
