Reflections of a working writer and reader



Durham Literature Festival

The Durham Literature Festival 2007 is scheduled for the 29th September to the 13th October.

Highlights include:

Sean O’Brien (2007 Northern Rock Award Winner)
Linton Kwesi Johnson (a rare visit to the North East by the reggae dub poet)
Daljit Nagra (Forward Prize Winner)
and the novelists A.S. Byatt and Pat Barker


This is a short poem by Daljit Nagra:

Raja’s Love Song


All the girls say they love me
all their mums say I’m lovely —
ever since I lived in the clouds.


Ever since you left me
I’ve been raining on the road
where you first said you loved me . . .

  1. Nice to see bits of it are at one of the university colleges (Hild Bede)! Just in time for the returning students, too…
