Back home for a few days before returning to Edinburgh to talk about 'Fresh Voices' with Jamie Jauncey, Lawrence Rhodes and Richard Holloway. I'll be speaking about the importance of encouraging creative writing in schools, and presenting the voice of upcoming talent Peter Ratter, who writes poetry and prose in Shetland Dialect and in English.

An interview in Shetland by Liz Leonard, with new poetry commissioned by the Scottish Book Trust, aired on Woman's Hour this morning - listen again here - including cameo appearances by some tirricks (arctic terns) and The Nordic Fiddlers' Bloc, whose album I am still loving to pieces. We sat for three hours at the edge of my favourite boulderfield to record this piece...a world of difference from hasty interviews down a telephone line.
