I was lucky enough to spend a few days up in the Black Isle recently. I went up to talk to school kids about poetry (and they were brilliant and lovely and engaged which was so nice!) and then got to spend a few days hanging about at the Black Isle Words Festival which was a good time because I got to see a whole bunch of poets I didn’t know who were outstanding and I even got to indulge in reading a few of my own. I think you can tell from this series of podcasts how warm and wonderful it is up there. If you get a chance – go visit. It is a beautiful place with beautiful people. Check out the podcasts if you are unconvinced.
