Literary Festival at St. Clémentin

Chrys Salt

Chrys is appearing at the St. Clémentin Bi-Lingual Festival in the Salle des fétes, Friday August 29th, 10.30-11.15

This Week we have had the pleasure of Chrys Salt staying with us in one of our gites with her partner Richard.

Chrys is a well known author, poet and playwright  and directs in the theatre.  Her work has appeared in many anthologies and has been performed at the BBC, across the UK and in the USA, Canada, France, Germany and Finland.  It has been translated into French, Arabic and is currently being translated into Hebrew.

Her poem “Weaver of Grass” was selected as one of the best Scottish poems of 2012.  Her anthology of the same title was shortlisted for the Callum Macdonald Memorial Award and she has been awarded a bursary by “Creative Scotland”  to finish her next collection.  This year she has been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

We wish Chrys a very successful event on Friday.
