Sally Evan the poet and editor of Poetry Scotland is the force behind the Callander Poetry Weekend. Poets come from all over to take part in this special event.
This year you can hear Elizabeth Rimmer, Sheila Templeton, Judith Taylor, Fred Beake, Colin Donati, Sheila Wakefield, Kevin Cadwallender, Ann MacKinnon, and that is pretty much just some of Day 1. Bridget Khursheed of p&g is reading at Callander this afternoon.
Alastair Cook is also talking about the making of filmpoems, Alan Gay leads a group from the Edinburgh Mandolin and Guitar Orchestra and Colin Will on sax backs Bryan Johnstone.
What is not to love. Events at King's Bookshop (open all year round) and the Kirk Hall and elsewhere all weekend. Find out more at http://www.desktopsallye.com/page22.htm
