“I went out to the hazel wood,/ Because a fire was in my head”
In the final part of our Highland trilogy, Ryan chats with John Glenday about what it’s like to be a drug counsellor and a poet, which poem he carries with him, and we get an opportunity to hear John read from new collection, Grain (Picador). We also have the track “Nothing to Hold Onto” by Kim Edgar, which was a response to a work by John during the 7 Short Sails project.
