Poetry at the Vic Beer Garden
Unlike many other poets who cross the road when they see me coming, the makar Stuart Paterson
He is of course one of the best writers of Scots poetry there is and was also excited to reveal great news of a new book, and many new opportunities lying ahead in the year to come. I was happy also to talk, among other things, about my upcoming tour of the Blash o God, a multi media collaboration with a French based artist focused on the Buchanites which is due to appear in three cities and the Wigtown Book Festival. https://www.photokennel.com/the-poetry-connection
All in all we shared the multiplicity of rich poetry projects and achievements that you might expect from two poets at the very top of their game.
What an afternoon! I think we had eight quid between us.
