Another Dose of Salt

20/07/2007

Salt has started a blog of coverage, readings etc connected to its Forward shortlisted authors. Can’t help but be chuffed to see they’ve linked to my comments on the shortlist. I’ll add the blog to the sidebar. Keep an eye on it: there seems to be something new every half hour or so! The latest is that Luke Kennard is bringing his theatre company to the Fringe, but here’s hoping Salt will bring their Forwardeers up to Scotland for a reading or two. After all, Jen Hamilton-Emery is a Scot and the publicity of a wee reading tour could only help them with the problems that I’ve heard they have shifting books in Scotland.

Speaking of Luke Kennard, his MySpace is also one of the recent additions to the Tonguefire blogroll. As you can see from the two links on his name above, I’ve tracked down a few of his poems online. First impressions: an interesting flavour of slightly madcap, surreal seriousness. It’s a voice I think I could easily warm to. I hope Salt will provide us with some podcast poems and one of their author videos on his author page soon.
