Farlin ... Fabulous!
This week I am off to Shetland, officially the farthest north I have ever been* - we're talking 60 degrees of latitude here - we're talking level with Hudson Bay, the Kamchatka Peninsula, Greenland ... I am the extremely grateful and more than a little over-excited guest of the Farlin Project** and will be reading at the Bonhoga Gallery on Friday at 7:30. So if you're anywhere near, drop by and say hello. For the rest of you, you'll have to wait till I'm back south again to find out how it went.
*Okay, the farthest north I've ever been while in actual contact with the ground. Airplanes don't count.
** The joint brainchild of Shetland Arts and Fife Contemporary Art and Craft, pairing poets and makers, and then waiting to see what happens! I hope to have photos of the interim work on display at the Bonhoga Gallery as part of the Wordplay Book Festival. The project will end at StAnza, Scotland's International Poetry Festival in St Andrews in March 2013.
