1. The T S Eliot Prize website is now very nearly complete, just the Yomi Ṣode videos missing, I think, and they should be up soon https://tseliot.com/prize/the-t-s-eliot-prize-2022/shortlist/
Try these two poems, both short, read by their author:
James Conor Patterson reading his poem ‘london mixtape’ https://youtu.be/jcUzHbokwyU
and Denise Saul reading ‘The Room Between Us’ https://youtu.be/Vy41V-X90SQ
All the videos here, including this year’s innovation, the Young Critics Scheme video reviews https://firstname.lastname@example.org/videos
2. I’ve not had time to explore fully this Mercator European Research Centre site yet https://www.mercator-research.eu/en/ but this page on Endangered languages and archives has caught my eye https://www.mercator-research.eu/fy/undersyk-projekten/endangered-languages-and-archives/
Thanks to Sarah Breslin for bringing this site to my attention.
3. Here’s the Conversation Weekly podcast site https://theconversation.com/uk/topics/the-conversation-weekly-98901
I’ve listened recently to this short series, Uncharted Brain: Decoding Dementia https://theconversation.com/unlocking-new-clues-to-how-dementia-and-alzheimers-work-in-the-brain-uncharted-brain-podcast-series-194773 A bit close to home, but has helped me understand my mother’s condition.
4. And, finally, if you’re enjoying a holiday break this coming week, how about writing a short story? https://www.plot-generator.org.uk/story/
Thanks to Thom Kiddle for this one.
The next ‘Free Resources’ message/post will be on Thursday 5th January – enjoy your holiday if you’re getting one!
