Franschoek Literary Festival 11th - 13th May 2012

In May I am on three panels at the Franschoek Literary festival. On one I will be discussing the scientific and poetic concerns in my recent non-fiction book 'Eloquent Body' (2012), on another Bev Rycroft and I will be egging each other on about the poetic process in our collections, 'Difficult Gifts' (2011).  On the last panel, three teachers of creative writing will be in conversation about their method and experiences. I am looking forward to it. Booking is open online.

16h00-17h00 FRIDAY 11 MAY
Prizewinning poems (Screening Room)
Poets Dawn Garisch (Difficult Gifts) and Beverly Rycroft (missing), winner and runner-up in last year’s EU Sol Plaatje competition, read and discuss their winning poems.

Carmel Rickard talks body language with Dawn Garisch (The Eloquent Body) and Marguerite Osler (The Art of Walking) who writes about conscious walking.
