Marjorie Lotfi Gill (right) is the Spring Fling open studios event's first writer in residence. She visited a number of studio locations over the Spring Fling weekend (May 23rd to 25th), writing in response to the artwork she saw.

Marjorie, a poet based in Edinburgh, encouraged others to write alongside her, and some contributions were inspired by the work of DAGFAS members, such as Lisa Hooper and Evelyn Gray. Some of the best submissions will be read at the 2015 Wigtown Book Festival.

Click here for an example of Marjorie's poetry and the work that inspired it by Silvana McLean. See much more at the Spring Fling writer in residence blog.
