City2Cities Literature Festival – Utrecht

29 03 2011

PoemCatching is heading to Holland for the launch of a major literary festival – City2Cities.
And I’m in good company with Liz Lochhead, (Poet Laureate) and John Burnside (from St Andrews University),  Ron Butlin (Edinburgh’s City Makar), Claire Askew (poet performer and lecturer) and Ali Bowden (Unesco City of Literature)

This event includes poets from Edinburgh, Stockholm and Utrecht, and I have been invited to add to the street flavour on the opening day. The plan is to create a reading wall, with the hundreds of submissions gathered in the heart of Utrecht. Submit a “CITY POEM” online – i.e. My City, City Living, What i love about my City, The City Visitor etc.
