Tonight I’ll be at the monthly meeting of the Shore Poets, which is usally a good evening’s live poetry. The line-up includes Dorothy Lawrenson whose chapbook I read a few weeks ago, Diana Hendry who is headlining the event at StAnza that I am also reading at, and also Harvey Holton, who has recently written a book of translations into Scots from the contemporary Chinese poet, Yang Lian – and Holton also writes his own poems in Scots.
