A Month on the Mile

The Royal Mile Business Association recently asked if I would write a poem to help trade up and down the Royal Mile – a somewhat unusual request! Luckily, while I was trying to write it, I bumped into poet Ingrid Murray who offered to help. Later a young film-maker, Michelle Hanzelova, was commissioned to create a film based on the poem, and Will Campbell composed the musical score. So it was a joint effort. The poem is on the website of the Scottish Poetry Library and the film is hosted by Edinburgh UNESCO City of Literature. Here’s a link to the first of four parts.
