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.

Fabulous! I am looking forward to coming to Blairgowrie and this festival as often as they invite me.  My next book is out in September next year so that would work out well.
