Boswell House Kenneth Steven

Last Friday I headed to the historic Boswell House in Montrose for a deep reading, deep writing retreat with outstanding Scots poet Kenneth Steven. Intimate sessions with four writers and a poet sharing together, retreating to sacred spaces with blank sheets of paper and re-emerging two hours later surprised and often moved by the results.
It was a beautiful lay-by on the busy road of life and has, I hope, downshifted me into a new way of approaching writing. It reawakened my inner urge to step aside regularly and practice the art of writing from deep pools of memory.
Thank you to Kenneth Steven. Check out his poetry and see the world through other glasses.
