Gatehouse of Fleet was buzzing over BIG LIT: The Stewartry Book Festival last week with folks coming from The Central Belt and beyond to savour the varied menu of events taking place at The Mill on the Fleet, Cream o'Galloway, Franca Bruno's and other locations. Local talent rubbed shoulders with performers from across the UK to provide four days of literary entertainment, including theatre, music, installation, events for young people, history, poetry and workshops for writers. Windows down The High St and across the town displayed short poems - some from as far afield as The Yukon. Over 200 poems had been submitted. Buskers and drums vibrated round the car park. Guerrilla poets accosted visitors and locals alike.
