Title: Two Places as One: Kathleen Jamie & Jen Hadfield
Location: Edinburgh, Scotland
Description: The Scottish Poetry Library offers a live broadcast between Inspace & Mareel. Hear readings by two poets who engage with nature in their work: Jen Hadfield reads in Shetland and is broadcast to Edinburgh, while Kathleen Jamie reads in Edinburgh and is broadcast to Shetland.
We’ll also discuss whether technology and nature can support one another, how contemporary poetry responds to modern landscapes (rolling hills dotted with wind farms, for instance) and link up with live feeds from Scotland’s wilderness.
