A quick note: I’ve got a poem in qarrtsiluni today, and two in the latest issue of Poetry Scotland. The PS poems are both about Scottish country dancing actually. It’s a little-known fact that Norman MacCaig, as a primary school teacher in Edinburgh, tried to teach Scottish country dancing to the final year pupils at Craiglockhart Primary. In my case, he failed, but I’ve got vague memories of the experience.
