Join us for a magical evening of words and music at the Pier Arts Centre, Stromness.

This summer, writers from Côte d’Ivoire, Nigeria, Canada, England, and Scotland are in residence in the hills above Loch Ness at Moniack Mhor, receiving time and space to develop new work. Delivered in partnership with the Pier Arts Centre, this exciting and eclectic event brings those writers and a selection of their work to Orkney.

Listen to poetry from Canadian-Scottish writer Alycia Pirmohamed, nature writing from Wainwright and Highland Book Prize longlisted Amanda Thomson, fiction from Glasgow-based writer Heather Parry, performance from Nigerian Chika Jones, poetry from British-Nigerian Tolu Agbelusi, words from Ivorian writer and literary activist, Edwige Renée Dro, and the Moniack Mhor 2023 Jessie Kesson Fellow, poet, writer, and performer, Genevieve Carver.

Read more about the Here and Now Residents here, and about the Jessie Kesson Fellow here.

Joining the writers will be traditional fiddle player Eric Linklater, melding Orcadian music with writing, poetry, and performance from across the world.

Come along and enjoy what promises to be a spellbinding evening.
