Writing the North: manuscripts travel to Shetland

Posted on March 28, 2014 | in CRC, Exhibitions, Featured, Uncategorized | by

Special Collections has loaned five manuscripts to Shetland Museum and Archives for their new exhibition, “Writing the North”, which celebrates the literature of Orkney and Shetland.  This exhibition is part of an AHRC-funded project coordinated by the University of Edinburgh’s English Literature department.  The manuscripts include a poem by Hugh MacDiarmid written on Shetland and poems written by George Mackay Brown on his copies of the Radio Times.  The display runs from 29/03/2014 – 10/05/2014. http://www.writingthenorth.com/ http://www.shetland-museum.org.uk/
