New CAESURA date – 29th June

Hello! Things have jigged around a bit with the CAESURA reading series dates. I’m now reading on 29th June, a month earlier than before, so I guess I’ll get my poetry skates on because it’ll surely be upon me before I know it.

It’s a different line-up that night too with, excitingly, Peter Manson on it. See a recent example of his poetry here┬áin this Hydrohotel issue.

Am feeling like I’ve earned some creative stripes today as PiP, the Poetry in Progress group I delight in being part of, regrouped last night for the first time in 2012. Much Prosecco and ink were spilled in the pursuit of ideal poetry. Interesting dreams followed – usually a sign for me that the creative tectonic plates are usefully on the move. I’ve been thinking a lot recently and processing the feedback I got over the last year about my writing and working through my reaction to the obstacle course of new reading I took myself over. It’s been daunting to work out where to direct my pen, but I’m going to throw caution to the wind and trust some new steps out again.

Iain Morrison WAS GOING TO BE reading at CAESURA in July

Hello, just a quick post to flag that I’m reading in a couple of months at the new CAESURA night at the Renroc Cafe in Edinburgh. Looking at the past two line-ups, it should be a good night. The estimable Greg Thomas is reading too. I’m lucky to know the chap. He’s a force for the good in Scotland’s text-art/art-text conversation and it looks from his blog like he’s getting close to the bone with some sinister skin graft effect poetry. Well, that’s probably saying too much. He’s very genial and not scary. Have a look.

NB NOW READING ON 29TH JUNE……..It’s 27th July. Would be good to see you if you’re around. I’m glad to have a date this far ahead with a bit of time to perhaps drive to a close some texts/poetry I have open. Montgomery Street’s turning into a bit of a wee cultural corner with The Old Ambulance Depot just round the corner and it linking up with the Leith Walk gallery/studio cluster. The event should appeal across disciplines as Graeme Smith who runs it is up for poetry+experiment.
