We hope to be able to have a renga day in and around Stromness in the summer months. It will be led by writer Yvonne Gray in locations that have an association with George Mackay Brown or are significant in his writing. In the course of the day we will compose a 36-verse collaborative poem based on the traditional Japanese renku form.
How we organise this will depend on the easing of current restrictions and guidelines on social distancing. If it becomes clear later in the year that it will not be possible to plan the renga in this way, an online renga will take its place. Watch this space!
