I’ve been invited to Dundee as a guest reader / talker / discusser-of-things for their Salon. It sounds like good fun and a way to meet some new folks in a casual kind of way. If you find yourself in Dundee and want to come along, it would be great to see you there. RVW
“The Salons are like no other ‘Reading’ or ‘Lecture’ or ‘talk’ on offer anywhere else – in Scotland or beyond – breaking down the barriers that all too often inhibit the growth and expression of cultural life for ordinary people.
Instead here is a forum in which everyone’s ideas matter, irrespective of professional background, taste or experience.
Seasoned poet and performer, Ryan Van Winkle, is the poet in residence for the Scottish Poetry Library. Just returned from a year’s travelling around his homeland of America, Ryan will read some of his exciting work, talk about his journeys and discuss how he has managed to make a career from poems. Join us for an exciting night that is sure to make you think differently about the world of poetry.”
