Figures of Speech – Future

I was delighted to present new work at Figures of Speech – Future, on 22nd July 2022, 7.30pm at the Scottish Storytelling Centre.

Authors Tendai Huchu (Twitter) and Dr Russell Jones (Twitter), were in conversation, discussing the impact of technological advancements on writers and readers, referencing Scottish writers and artists including Edwin Morgan and Metaphrog.

Is the future of Scottish literature a utopia, dystopia or something else entirely?

I presented new work, a poetic narrative titled Caledonian Forest, 3033, that explores an imagined evolution from storing our data in plant life to sentient biotech as archivists and storytellers.

Pay what you can tickets for the captioned and BSL translated recording are available via the Scottish Storytelling Centre.

Or watch the livestream below – I’m on around 50 minutes in and then join Russell and Tendai to talk about the piece and for the audience Q&A – enjoy!
