Return to Siglufjörður

I am grateful to the Oppenheim John Downes Trust for a generous grant that enables me to return to Iceland this spring to complete work on a series of poems about Icelandic fishing culture. These poems will be published together with a suite of photographs by Mark Walton.

I have been invited to read my work at The Nordic House, Reykjavik in February, before spending the month of March as Writer in Residence at Herhus in Siglufjörður, a small town at the northernmost point of Iceland.
