This is doubtless a convoluted way of posting links, but I’m struggling to find a way of making a column in this theme. And I like this theme!
Excuse over. I thought I’d use this post as an updatable list of pages relevant to the blog, and I’ll link to it from the top menu.
To start with:
The Scottish Poetry Library! (wonderful resource for my life in Edinburgh)
Andrew Gannon (an artist I know from Edinburgh and whose work I like. I’ve even been roped into some of his performance work. Nearly literally!)
Sita Calvert-Ennals (theatre director with whom Leiza and I worked on the Gimme the Beat Girls project. Bristol/Cardiff based)
Gob Squad (amazing performance company based in Berlin that I did a workshop with at….)
InBetween Time Productions (led by the inspiring Helen Cole, Live Art programmer)
Brenda Knight (who’s an inspiring author researching women Beat authors amongst many other things)
and if we’re going way back, Winchester Cathedral (where I sang during my gap year).
Contemporary Music Making for All (ran a great summer school which helped me to get into a broader range of music-making)
and I was led into this by John Woolrich (the fascinating composer and my sometime teacher)
Calum Roger – academic, poet and mischief maker based in Glasgow
Scree Magazine – delighting homespun Edinburgh poetry zine inspired by 60’s handpresses run by Lila Matsumoto. I’ve had the pleasure of inclusion.
