Place Through Poetic Eyes

1st Oct 2014

Tom Pow, who will be conversing with fellow poet Ron Butlin, at BOOKMARK's Poetry and Place event on 11 October, is currently in Lagos on an exchange visit with Nigerian poet Tolu Ogunlesi whom he had previously hosted in Scotland in May. Tom has been blogging about those visits for Commonwealth Poets United website where you can read all about their many and varied experiences in each other's countries.

I greatly appreciated the superb organisation and was amazed at the level of enthusiasm for the Festival considering the relatively small size of the community.  It was well worth it for me to come up to Perthshire and I was only sorry I couldn‘t stay around for the main events the next day.
