Its been a little while since I’ve posted anything much, partly because I’ve been busy with essays, but I haven’t been idle as far as writing and poetry is concerned:
Last night was UniSlam 2014, with teams from Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester Metropolitan, Edinburgh and St Andrews, all here in Teviot competing for the coveted UniSlam trophy. Having won the first ever UniSlam last year down in Birmingham, the Edinburgh team defended their title and won again! It was a great night, with poems from twenty brilliant student poets. I’ve shared work by Lucy, Doug and Jess (who were all on the winning team) in the past, but with any luck I’ll soon be sharing work from Joe and some of the representatives of other universities too. There was a lot of great talent that night.
All that also gave me the motivation to sit down and do some proper writing for the first time in a while, leading to two new poems, some progress on a third and small edits to two others. I’ll be posting the new poems soon, but for now here are the updates:
