My time for the “Four Hour Festival” event has been confirmed: I’m on at 15:00 and it’s a 10-minute set. Plenty time to get myself organised for that.
The event is open to prose as well as poetry and I’ve no idea what the balance between the two will be, but it should be fun. It also includes Shore Poet Nancy Somerville at 13:00; fellow blogger and HappenStancer Rob A Mackenzie at 13:10; and the Scottish Poetry Library‘s new reader in residence, Ryan Van Winkle, at 14:00. That’s three other poets at least. I don’t recognise any of the other names on the bill, so I’m looking forward to hearing some unfamiliar writers, including the fabulously named Jimmy Warblegoose.
