Wordfringe Spring Events
March 2010

Scottish Book Trust

Wordfringe presents a series of literary events across Aberdeenshire with the support of the Scottish Book Trust Live Literature scheme

This year the Wordfringe festival is transformed into New Words, which takes place in September instead of May. We do, however, still have a short series of performances and workshops in the Spring. These events take place at venues across Aberdeenshire, and feature a variety of writers with strong connections to the North-East.

The ever popular poet Kenneth Steven appears in Inverurie with local fiddle player Daniel Thorpe, recently named BBC Young Traditional Musician 2010. George Gunn of Grey Coast Theatre leads a workshop on playwriting, there's a poetry workshop from John Glenday, whose new collection Grain has received much praise, and we have a workshop on novel writing given by local crime writer Bill Kirton.

The full programme for New Words 2010 will be announced in July, and the Wordfringe Noticeboard lists events of literary interest throughout the year.
