By leaves we live

This should be a good event and I plan to be there:

By Leaves We Live: a celebration of art & poetry magazines
Saturday 30 September 2006, 11-6 pm.

A unique one day fair at the Scottish Poetry Library.

  • Stalls and displays
  • Drop in to browse or buy magazines
  • Meet editors from Scotland and beyond
  • Listen to panel discussions on poetry and art magazine publishing

For readers, writers, artists, designers, publishers – all welcome.
A not-to-be-missed event in the poetry year. All under one roof for one day.

Events running throughout the day:

The role of the magazine, the editor, and the challenges of creating a readership. A discussion with Michael Schmidt (PN Review), Joy Hendry (Chapman), Helen Nicholson (Magma). Chaired by Robyn Marsack, Director of the Scottish Poetry Library.

Duncan Glen (Akros, Zed20) in conversation with Gerry Cambridge (The Dark Horse)

Finding homes for poems
with Helena Nelson (Happenstance Press & Sphinx)

Exploring the potential of the magazine & serial format – creativity, content & design. A discussion with
Alice Bain (MAP), Alec Finlay (Morning Star), Matthew Williams (Fruitmarket Gallery). Chaired by Julie Johnstone (island).

Magazine publishing today – and what does the future hold? A selection of editors and others take the opportunity to talk about issues of interest to them, and about how recent editions of their magazines evolved.
