This role required me to travel 2000 miles of waterways, writing poems about the people and places I encountered – a dream job for a kayaker. (Some of the completed projects can be found online at waterlines.org.uk)

Now I'm Literature Fellow at Internationales Künstlerhaus Villa Concordia in the beautiful city of Bamberg, Germany, until next spring. I'll be working on a new poetry collection, and reading my way through contemporary German literature in translation – recommendations very welcome!(less)

I had been invited to Upernavik, an island on the northwest coast of Greenland, to write about its history and the present-day community but I hoped to record some observations on the wider Arctic environment too. However, the weather conditions were so extreme that winter I couldn’t walk much further than the hilltop cemetery, where coffins decorated with plastic wreaths were lined up in rows, waiting for the earth to unfreeze the following spring. The poems in the book respond both to my hopes and fears in this harsh environment, and to the important life lessons I learned from the islanders and the ancient objects in the museum.(less)

Villa Concordia

Last week I arrived at the Internationales Künstlerhaus Villa Concordia in Bamberg, Germany where I will be based for the next eleven months as a Literature Fellow. The Künstlerhaus hosts a number of artists, writers and composers from Germany and one other country each year, with scholarships provided by the Free State of Bavaria. You can see below the warm welcome given to the British artists

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
“Own only what you can always carry with you: know languages, know countries, know people. Let your memory be your travel bag. Use your memory! Use your memory! It is those bitter seeds alone which might sprout and grow someday.

Look around you - there are people around you. Maybe you will remember one of them all your life and later eat your heart out because you didn't make use of the opportunity to ask him questions. And the less you talk, the more you'll hear.”
Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956
