A new partnership project with Wigtown Book Festival in 2015, the reverse of the Spring Fling x Wigtown Book Festival Residency.

Marjorie Lotfi Gill spent time writing about Spring Fling artists' artwork in a number of the studios in the run up to and over Spring Fling weekend 2015, and and encouraging others to write alongside her, as well as providing other opportunities for Spring Fling visitors to respond to the artworks in writing.

155 new pieces of writing: poems or flash fiction, were written in the run up to or over Spring Fling weekend and submitted from across the world. These can be read on the Writers Blog. Marjorie then presented a selection of ths work during Wigtown Book Festival 2015.
