Poetry, poetry and more poetry!

So much has been happening lately that I have not had time to share.  I will include some links in this post to recent events and excitements.

I had this article about borders, passports and writers working abroad in politically-complicated countries published in The Bottle Imp, a wonderful online journal that exists to promote and support the teaching and study of Scottish literature and language.

I’m just back from a trip to Montreal to read and perform at the fabulous 17e Festival de la poésie de Montréal.  Here is a blog that came out just before the festival and my own travel blog for the SPL website here.

I have a poem in the lovely anthology Edinburgh Unsung, which you can read here.  The full anthology is here, and you can read more about the project here.

You can take a look here at a blog about the Literary Europe Live platform that the SPL is now part of and me in the video doing a couple of haiku answers for the camera:

And I found some videos from the wonderful Canadian Innu Poetry Exchange that I was a part of last year at the Edinburgh International Book Festival.  You can hear us talking a little about the project here:

Hope you enjoy this wee update and that your own projects are proliferating.
