Lumberjack shirts

Hope everybody had a peaceful Easter, and managed to get some reading done. I really enjoyed our book and look forward to the discussion. I’m assuming we will all be wearing our checked shirts? Maybe this is because I’ve just spent a week in Scotland on the Fielding Programme doing some writing myself – and it’s that kind of rugged place. I didn’t have to cut any wood, even though we had snow and hail. Very beautiful.
As well as our book, I’m going to bring a few poems from “local” poets: those with some connection to the North East. Probably Gillian Allnutt, Colette Bryce and Sean O’Brien – just one from each. Look forward to seeing everybody next Monday.
