Nancy Campbell – Poetry Reading

March 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Nancy Campbell’s poetry is fresh from the north, steeped in Greenlandic folklore, and landscapes—and awake to what threatens these as old cultures dwindle and climate change kicks in. Her collection Disko Bay was shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best First Collection (2016).

Nancy Campbell is a writer who works across disciplines, from poetry and essays to artist’s books. She grew up in the Scottish Borders and Northumberland and her work is informed by these landscapes and borderlines. A series of residencies with Arctic research institutions has resulted in projects responding to cultural and climate change in polar and marine environments.

Nancy will also be supported by poet Harriet Fraser of Cumbrian artist duo Somewhere Nowhere

This event is part of the Wild Film Festival Scotland, and is free to attend. All welcome!
