Hey! Yeah, you there, with the furrowed brow, the fistful of flyers and the crazed, distracted look. Listen, put down the Fringe Guide – it’s okay, just for an hour – and tuck yourself away in the soothing environs of the Scottish Poetry Library’s courtyard, where they’re holding afternoon readings that anyone can take part in. Read your own finely crafted verse or share a couple of your favourites by other people – it’s free, it’s soothing, and it’s probably good for your soul.
Scottish Poetry Library courtyard, Crichton’s Close, 557 2876, Mon 17–Sat 29 Aug (not Sundays), 2pm, free.
