A recent Guardian Books podcast features an international array of island writers who had gathered in the Faroe Islands for a conference about the island in literature. Included are Iceland’s Sjón, Greenlandic novelist Niviaq Korneliussen, Shetlander Robert Alan Jamieson, Newfoundlander Donna Morrissey, Tasmanian Pete Hay and Jamaican poet Paulette Ramsey. The Faroese academic Bergur Rønne Moberg also took part by introducing his intriguing theory on the literature of the ultra-minor.
