Did you know that 2019 was the Year of Conversation? A programme celebrating the power of a good chat has been put together, bringing together a stellar selection of partners including The Scottish Storytelling Centre, The Scottish Poetry Library, the Edinburgh International Book Festival and, of course, your pals here at Edinburgh City of Literature.
Events include a discussion at the Royal Society of Edinburgh which asks what makes a good conversation, and a whole selection of events looking at Poetry in Conversation at StAnza, Scotland’s poetry festival. More details will be added to the programme throughout the year, with plenty of opportunities to explore the ways we can talk about stories and ideas, bringing together people by listening to new voices and telling new tales.
If you have a good idea for an event, would like to get involved, or just want to make your appreciation of a good chinwag known, have a look at the website: www.ayearofconversation.com.
