Award-winning poet Jen Hadfield will be reading new poems in the Warehouse Buildings, Stromness, on Monday 1 April at 7.30pm.
Jen's forthcoming collection, The Stone Age, will explore human relationships and the wild world from a neurodiverse perspective, in poems full of rapture, transparency and humour. As a poet with neurodiverse traits, Jen Hadfield will read from new work and asks if many Aspie traits may not only be native to poetry but also vital to our culture.
Jen has been based in Shetland for many years. Her previous collections include Nigh-No-Place, Almanacs (both Bloodaxe) and Byssus (Picador).
The reading is supported by the George Mackay Brown Fellowship. Entry is free and all are welcome. ... See MoreSee Less
