Edinburgh Festival goings-on - Tim Turnbull, Patricia Ace, Morgan Downie and (ahem) me!

Some local writers and poets are appearing at the Edinburgh Festival - if you're down there then please check them out.

Tim Turnbull will be appearing in his one-man spoken word event at the Banshee Labyrinth from the 18th-28th August, starting at 8.40pm each day. Details here

Crieff-based poet Patricia Ace is appearing in a Loose Tongues performance on Friday 27th August at the Forest Cafe, 3 Bristo Place, between 4-5 pm. Patricia is reading with Stephanie Green, Jane McKie and Mandy Haggith.

Perth-based poet Morgan Downie will be reading a selection of his work at various venues
August 13th and August 19th at the Captain's Bar, South College St (7.30pm start)
August 16th at St John's Church, Princes St (2pm start)
August 21st 'al fresco' at Craig's Close - this involves what Morgan describes as a 'weaving installation' which must be a first for poetry!
August 22nd at the Banshee Labyrinth cinema on Niddry St (4.45pm start)

I will be joining Morgan for a reading at the Captain's Bar on Friday August 13th. Good job I'm not superstitious!
