We’ve starting uploading the videos from Solstice Shorts 2019, Time & Tide.
Here is Half a Dozen Oranges, byMandy Macdonald, read by Chukwudi Onwere, BSL interpretation by Paul Michaels; and from the Portuguese event in Oeiras, Marina Pacheco reading the same poem as an opportunuty to compare and contrast!
Limited edition illustrated book of the material available now from our webshop or events only.
We are aiming to get BSL translations of some of the material, and this will also be on the website in about March, to coincide with the launch of the bookshop version of the book.
We are (we really hope we are) livestreaming most of the events for this year’s Solstice Shorts Festival, Time and Tide, because not everyone lives close enough to reach any of the events, or may have excellent reasons not to venture out, and we don’t want you to miss a thing.
Here’s which events are being livestreamed where on Facebook.
It’s been a total whirl since successfully crowd funding. We’ve got our funding from Arts Council England, Aberdeenshire Council and Literature Wales all confirmed (nothing in the bank but…!)
The Tshirts have arrived!
and we’ve started packing up the rewards to go in the post hopefully tomorrow.
We’ve finished typesetting the special edition book. Here’s what the title pages look like…
The book is off to the printers tomorrow, after an epically fast proof-reading by the wonderful Muireann, who turned up on the doorstep with the corrections this morning, and she says its one of our best collections.
We’ve started finding actors, and sending out material, and talking to the Shanty Collective about what additional songs could go with which stories/poems.
and we’ve designed most of the posters and flyers, just waiting for confirmation of details transfered correctly for one or two.
And next weekend we’ve got the sea shanty workshop. If anyone wants to come along, tickets are here: https://bit.ly/2MuSSv0
