A State of Grace

A late return from Branchage Festival on the island of Jersey and from a place off the map known subsequently as The Garden of Eden where a boat filled with bass; good times were spent in the company of friends and collaborators; a literary salon was built with ale and talk and the publication of the poet Will Burns' debut volume for Faber - 'Will Burns - Faber New Poets 10' was celebrated over several days and nights.  My review of it written for Caught by the River can be read here.
