Reading locations

I’ve been spending time over the last few weeks reading lots of local books and poems to help me think about an exciting project we have planned.

Shetland’s literature features some wonderful locations and I think it would be really great to develop a series of local walks that celebrate some of these places which writers have written about.

Maybe you have some ideas?  Why don’t you write me a little note and leave it with the friendly staff in Shetland Library.

I’ll also be based in Mareel during Wordplay so come and chat with me there.

I’m excited

Many years ago, when the idea of an electronic reader would have made me gaff oot lood (GOL) I used to be involved in organising Wordplay.  I remember after the event always feeling exhausted but always having a warm fuzzy feeling of I think that was fun.

It’s been fun to be part of the steering group for this year and to help plan the return of the festival, which now coincides with Book Week Scotland.

This means there really will be lots of fun things happening.

I’m excited because the Wordplay programme may be the best thing I’ve read in 2016.
