collaboration and conference


June is proving to be a busy month poetry-wise. I’ve been preparing for a masterclass with the American poet Cole Svenson which will take place at the Kelvingrove gallery on 19th June as part of a conference on Ekphrasis: Writing into Art. Ekphrasis is one medium of art responding creatively to another and in our case we’ve been writing poems inspired by paintings in the Kelvingrove gallery; more to come on this…

I’m also planning to attend the Poet’s Compass conference for emerging poets taking place at the end of June. And I’m looking forward to doing a collaborative piece of work with a printmaker from the Edinburgh Printmakers Workshop as part of a project organised by the Scottish Poetry Library. More blog updates to come after these events; happy days.
