Kei Miller & poetical golfing

July 2, 2010

Our poet of the month for July is Kei Miller. We loved Kei’s reading at StAnza in March, and are delighted that his presence on our homepage coincides with the July launch of his new collection from Carcanet, A Light Song of Light and his latest novel, The Last Warner Woman, published by Weidenfeld and Nicolson. You can find out more about Kei on his A – Z page, read his poem ‘If this short poem stretches’ and listen to some audio.

Kei will also be performing along with more than a dozen poets taking the stage at Fife Council’s Welcome to Fife Pavilion, which will be showcasing the highlights of ‘2010: Fife’s Year of Culture’ during the Golf Open Championship, taking place at St Andrews, 11-18 July. Others include Kevin Cadwallander, Angela McSeveney and Eddie Gibbons, all of whom appeared at StAnza back in March. Other StAnza poets taking the stage, from 13-18 July, include Jim Carruth, Anna Crowe and Milton Balgonie. For full details of the line-up and when the poets are appearing, visit the StAnza website. There will also be updates on Twitter. So if you can’t stand your golf without a side of poetry (and music, dancing, displays and cookery demonstrations, offering a sample of the cultural riches Fife has to offer) then this championship is for you.
