Quick reminder that I’m also appearing in Blackwell’s Bookshop on the South Bridge, Edinburgh on Thursday 13th August from 6-7.15pm as part of the Blackwell’s Writers at the Fringe events (scroll down at the link), along with five other writers. If any of you are around, it would be great to see a friend or two in the audience.
I thought I’d flag up this Edinburgh Book Festival event with Jenny Bornholdt, Bashabi Fraser & Martin MacIntyre on Saturday from 4pm. Unfortunately, I don’t think I’m going to be able to make it. However, it should be well worth checking out, especially for Martin’s poetry, which is mainly in Gaelic (with English translation).
The autumn 2009 programme for Poetry at the... is now up. Check out the links on the names down the left sidebar. Should be great! I’m also interested to hear your views on the possibility of having a short open-mic at each event. Is that a good or bad idea?
The Magma blog asks, Are you bored with the default poem? You can of course answer either ‘yes’ or ‘no’, although further intelligent remarks will also be appreciated.
