Big Lit is "a festival in a day" in Gatehouse of Fleet in Dumfries and Galloway. It is run by poet and all-round theatrical dynamo Chrys Salt. It takes place this year on 26 May. My personal involvement is two poems in shop windows, so should you be in South West Scotland on Saturday, do head for Gatehouse of Fleet and scour every window in the High Street, looking for 'Riot Poem' and 'Chefs of Soho'. You'll find even more interesting stuff being read out loud at a venue nearby (everywhere is pretty nearby in Gatehouse of Fleet, so far as I can gather).
