Orkney Writers at the St Magnus Festival, 2013

Exciting news is that I'm one of the 8 poets selected on the Orkney Writers' Course and will get to  perform with the other participants at the St. Magnus Festival, Kirkwall, June, 2013.

St. Magnus Festival,  Orkney
Sunday 23rd June, 2013
'Poems with Tunes, Tea and Cake'

Orkney Writers accompanied by classical guitarist, James Boyd 
 at 16.30-17.50
at the Stromness Hotel, Stromness.

So a change from my usual summer trip to Shetland, but I am not being totally disloyal as Jen Hadfield who tutored me on courses in Shetland will also, with  Pam Beasant be the tutor on the Orkney course. So it will be great to meet up in a new setting.
Christopher Reid, the Festival Poet in Residence, will give us a Master Class and we get an opportunity to collaborate with the musicians on the Orkney Composers' course.  Evenings at the St Magnus Festival events - can't wait to hear the acoustics in the cathedral.
