Particle Monologues with Grangemouth High School

Particle Monologues found its way to a high school in Grangemouth, Scotland! I had the pleasure of working with the wordsmith Elspeth Murray along with Grangemouth High School librarian Joyce Barnes and her incredible students to arrange and rearrange their particle monologues into collaborative poems, which were then transcribed into a poetry installation at the Scottish Book Trust in Edinburgh! We did a collaborative arranging exercise, stream of consciousness writing, and shared our poems back to one another in a two hour workshop that could have gone on all day. Thanks to Grangemouth students for such wonderful energy, spirit, and questions. I miss you!
