Edwin Morgan in conversation with Marco Fazzini
“I am not sure, really, but I have always liked the idea that poetry, like the other arts, is definitely entitled to explore its own formal potential even though it may make mistakes or may go into a cuI-dc-sac. But, occasionally, it may go into some interesting region and bring back something from somewhere else. I think that it is what happens to concrete poetry or sound poetry.”
Following on from the success of The Second Life artist commissions which celebrated Edwin Morgan’s centenary year, the Edwin Morgan Trust has launched a permanent funding stream, The Second Life Awards.
Established to support projects that enrich Scottish cultural life and connect with Edwin Morgan’s life and work, The Second Life Awards are open to applications from organisations, collectives, groups and individuals.
The Edwin Morgan Trust recognises the work of existing organisations in Scotland who are aligned with our vision, mission and values, and aim to support the lasting sustainability of these important projects during this challenging financial period. The Second Life Awards are granted every two years, and are responsive to current political and social changes. We welcome input from partners and collaborators.
