RAISING THE WIND
Ardent bloggees who have been following the progress of the Berwickshire Poetry Anthology will be delighted to hear that the slim volume is at the Printers in Tweeddale and will soon be published with the title of "Spectres on the Landscape"
Perhaps its appearance will coincide with the reopening of the public inquiry on the Wind Farm proposed for Fallago Rig as now demanded (belatedly) by the Scottish Borders Council. If you can tear yourselves away from the poetry read the Berwickshire News
main story here.
The image of Duns Castle in the Frost (no not earlier this month) by a local photographer will be the front cover picture and the spectres as seen on Harden's Hill above Duns will grace the back together with the eponymous poem from within the anthology. No, you will have to buy a copy to read the verse in question plus the 57 others by 27 different poets from (mainly) the Merse.
No need for a mad rush to buy. The Anthology is to be launched at a musical/poetry reading event in Christchurch Duns on the evening of Sunday 18th October. Three prize winning poets (best under 11, best High School and best previously unpublished Adult 'virgin')will receive their prizes at the launch when they and some other contributors will read some of their poems. A Brass Ensemble will provide the backing. The anthology will be on sale amidst the wine and nibbles
Tickets will be available from early October. Look out for touts in the Market Square
and at the usual spots in the Park.
