Busy week

VoxBox and the Scottish Poetry Library are holding a Sotto Voce Slam on Wednesday evening at the SPL, in association with the Ivor Cutler exhibition and the Noise Abatement Society. I’m looking forward to taking part, and I’ve chosen poems for the first and second rounds. The judges will be looking for ‘exquisite’ poems, and I’m not totally sure if that’s the right word to describe my poetry.

Thursday I’m doing a poetry workshop at the State Hospital, Carstairs. I always enjoy my visits there – I never know how the patients will respond to poems, but it’s great to try out a variety of themes and styles, before I focus in on something they’re interested in.

In the evening I’m doing a renga in Dunbar as part of the ‘Curiouser and Curiouser’ event at the Arts Hub.

At the weekend I’m off to Callander for the Poetry Weekend – details on the Poetry Scotland website.
