Burnedthumb Spreading its Wings
There are a few opportunities to catch me in action coming up.
First of all, there was the interview on Pulse Radio, which you can now hear on Mixcloud at
Then I have just received notice that InterlitQ, a wonderful on-line resource based in Argentina, has published five of my poems, including the title poem of Haggards. You can read them all here.
And for the future, I will be reading some poems and talking about artistic responses to environmental and social upheaval at a conference at Stirling University on the 19th April entitled Connecting with a Low-Carbon Future – further details here. I’ll be talking about The Scottish Centre for Geopoetics and the Dark Mountain Project.
And in June I’ll be at Expressing the Earth, a conference organised by The Scottish Centre for Geopoetics from the 22nd -24th June. I’m talking about herbs, landscape and ways of knowing, but there’s a packed programme of talks, workshops, films, music and field trips, along with the chance to meet other artists working in many different genres – and hopefully produce new collaborations and ways of creating art. Tickets are on sale now, and I can only encourage anyone interested to move fast, because we have had a lot of interest already.
