StAnza 2010 – Jamaican Jet-set and Jay Barnard

Sitting quietly in the Byre Theatre which is now becoming less and less quiet as the last show comes out. Had a lovely chat with Jay Barnard this evening about her role as Artist in Residence. Sitting back and taking stock is sage advice, too much wading in last night has taken its toll on me know, and my eye-lids weigh heavy.  Check out the StAnza podcasts here for more from the festival.

Kei Miller this afternoon was truly electric. His new collection fuses imagery of light and dark with the constant smile of his Jamaican accent. I was going to use the word lilt, but I realised the connotation would not sit appropriately.

I hope to catch up with Tom Pow and give him at least one fact about Milosz that might amuse him. Here’s hoping…
