I'm heading to Orkney next Sunday to give two readings – the first at Woodwick House, as part of the Poet Partner scheme, on the 20th. This is the first leg of an exchange between Orkney and Shetland's Poet Partners: myself and Pam Beasant. Looking forward to welcoming Pam to Shetland this autumn; perhaps she'll bring North the renga form that sounds as if it's thriving in Orkney.
The second reading is in the Pier Arts Centre on the 22nd September as part of EQUINOX – An Evening for Orkney Futures http://www.sand14.com/relocatinginnovation/orkney/index.htm
I'm very excited about that: the Pier was closed for its refurbishments when I was last in Orkney.
