From Shore to Shoormal news

"The poems themselves are wonderful—a reminder of poetry as playing with words, piling image on image [...] at times lively, playful, in other moods evocative and moving. [...] Not to be missed by anyone who enjoys words."
—Marsali Taylor, Shetland Times

"This unusual poetry book [...] is a celebration of connections and duality [...] The poems reflect life on opposite coasts of the Atlantic: shorelines, nature, people, relationships."
—Laureen Johnson, The New Shetlander

Shore to Shoormal co-author Nat Hall recently, 18 & 19 May 2013, read in the Shetland Boat Show in Lerwick.

Now she's planning her book launch event for Shore to Shoormal scheduled during Wordplay, Shetland's annual book festival that runs 31 August to 8 September 2013. Join Nat Hall and friends on 1 September 2013, Sunday, 12:30-1:30 pm, in Screen 2, Mareel, in Lerwick, Shetland, Scotland. The reading will be followed by a book signing.

Broken Jaw Press publisher–poet Joe Blades will be there giving his own poetry readings and a writing workshop in Wordplay thanks to an Arts by Invitation grant received from artnb. He has previously giving readings and workshops in Scotland: in Dalbeattie, Dumfries, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Johnstonebridge, and Paisley.
