“Poetry Isle in Margate: Turner Contemporary.
A writer in residence is an explorer. There is something dutiful and beautiful about embedding in community and finding the poems in its midst and mist. In Margate I found the poem For Work For Love. Originally I wanted to call it “The Trace Sea” after Tracey Emin. She is from Margate. But “For Work For Love it is. Same difference. The poem was sung and danced by the community and projected on The Turner Contemporary Art gallery for three nights. It is the first light-projection on Turner Contemporary.
