Last week Keith Parker who hosts the facebook group Poetry Talk, was kind enough to publish this lovely review of The Territory of Rain. He has given me permission to share it here.
Also, Soundwaves, this year’s anthology of the Federation of Writers (Scotland) was launched. It is, at 320 pages, the largest anthology the Federation has published, containing a mixture of poetry, flash fiction and short stories from writers such as Colin Will, Etta Dunn, Charlie Gracie, Finola Scott, Ann McKinnon, Marie Therese Taylor, Anne Clarke, Stephen Watt, Sheila Templeton, Maggie Rabatski, Anne Connolly and Kevin Cadwallender. A snip at £9.99. Oh, and Stand in the Light is in there too.
And, still to come, a reading from the Dazzle Ship pamphlet Signal at the Edinburgh Book Shop (in Bruntsfield, at Holy Corner) on Monday 22 August at 7pm.
And then on to September when Sally Evans has a packed programme of readings, performances and book launches already planned for the Callander Poetry Weekend. More details later.
