The Word(s) on Sunday

08/06/2009

April, may be the cruelest month, but June is shaping up to be the busiest. This Sunday coming (14th), I’ll be doing not one but two readings. First of all, you can join me and a variety of other Linlithgow-based authors in the marquee at the Rugby Club for “Take Tea With an Author”, a free event, with all donations going to Donaldson’s school for the deaf, which is now based in the town. There will be tea, coffee, home baking and books. The other authors are: Ian Emerson, Harry Knox, Douglas Watt, Jane McKie, Wallace Lockhart and Ewan McVicar.

In the evening, you’ll find me sharing the Crypt Bar of the Jekyll & Hyde in Edinburgh with Zorras, my fellow former Shore Poet Allan Crosbie, and fellow Salt poet and blogger exraordinaire, Katy Evans-Bush. You can read my poem “Lullaby” and a biog note at the Poetry at the … site. In fact, it’s been up there since 31 May, but I’ve been rather tardy in blogging it (sorry, Rob!). Should be a great evening.

More gigs to come this month, including a bundle in Edinburgh on Sat 20th and what promises to be a cracker in London on 29th, where I’ll be reading with Rob A Mackenzie, Katy Evans-Bush again and the distinguished Chinese “misty poet” Yang Lian.
