Today’s agenda: typing my thesis very quietly while sitting on the floor of my room acclimatising our new kitten. Not a bad Sunday! #phdchat

V late to the party, but I’ve just finished watching #Broadchurch and it’s outstanding. Esp season 3: no spoilers, but the way it handles sexual assault, with facts, nuance, without judgment - is the best I’ve seen it covered in popular media. And the acting is brilliant.

I know very little about the craft behind short films, but this new piece from @SGrantCreative & @devereuxbass is gorgeous with an edge: really well shot and packing surprising depth considering how short it is. Only 4 min - give it a watch!

Quoted @404Ink

We've re-opened our mag subs and are seeking writing from underrepresented groups. We received some exceptional writing in our first call but want to ensure we are publishing a diverse range of voices, and do all we can to make sure that happens. 🌌http://404ink.com/submissions 🌌

We need more BAME, LGBTQ+ writers, writers with disabilities, those who identify as working class, generally those who feel typically under/misrepresented. It all gets a bit homogeneous in our submissions so we're seeking a larger pool. Successful submissions get £.

Listening to the #Loudcast and 1- @StuartKenny is absolutely the Pixar of the Edinburgh poetry scene and 2- A Stuart Kenny / @MarianneMacRae collab needs to happen!! @IAmLoudPro @kevoutloud

In tonight’s instalment of “Katie keeps mixing up academic language,” I keep writing “epitaph” instead of “epigraph,” so that the starts of my chapters read like tombstones… not a cheery prospect for the health of my thesis! #phdchat

The final poet gracing our stage this Friday is the eloquent Katharine Macfarlane! She's the Fechters & Quines & the Four Cities Slam Champion 2016 and came 3rd in the Scottish National Slam Championships 2017. 

See her 7:30pm 15/3 @ScotStoryCentre; tix: https://www.scottishstorytellingcentre.com/event-post/eventid/18085-loud-poets-choose-life/ …

#phdchat So I'm proposing a taxonomy (of strains of authenticity within contemporary UK spoken word), but keep accidentally writing 'taxidermy' ... ain't nobody want a taxidermy of poetic authenticity...

Some fantastic names on this longlist! Special shout-out for @msjlindsay's #ThisScript video - @PerryJonssonDP & @kevoutloud & @novasounduk and the rest of the creative team did a brilliant job bringing her technically impressive piece to life. https://youtu.be/hoXH-wdLv9E
