Iain Morrison – A Preview

Iain has a frequently collaborative practice as a writer and performer, working within live literature and live art contexts. Projects have included sung staging of texts by women Beat Generation writers, a lecture presentation and performance with classical musicians for New Media Scotland’s Syndicate series, and Subject Index a durational installation of the complete poems of Emily Dickinson developed in residency at Forest Centre+ and toured to Berlin’s SOUNDOUT! New Ways of Presenting Literature Festival in May 2014. Publishing includes poem-responses to fin de siècle Vienna included in the Kakania anthology (2015), published by Austrian Cultural Forum London and edited by S.J. Fowler and work in serial publications such as HOAX, Soanyway and Scree Magazine. In his role as Enterprise Manager at The Fruitmarket Gallery, he works within a commercial framework to grow new audiences and bring them into dialogue with the Gallery’s exhibitions programme through events and other activity.

Please note that a change in circumstances means that our next event will not be at The Castle Hotel as usual, but will instead be at The Wonder Inn, 29 Shudehill, Manchester, M4 2AF. This is just a few minutes walk from The Castle. More information here.

The Other Room website rebooted!

The Other Room website has been running the whole duration we’ve been running our nights and has started to bulge and bulge. So we decided to do a bit of a spring clean in order to make it easier to navigate. We’ve also tidied up all those inevitable missed links which Mick Weller celebrates HERE.

If you’re old or new to the site have a look around our massive archive of blog/news posts, video archive from most of our readings, video and print interviews, book reviews, reviews of our events, poster archive and photos. Don’t forget of course to check out our upcoming events and annual anthology.
