Mainly for people anywhere near Edinburgh, but also for those with an interest in live poetry anywhere, I’d like to draw your attention to my new Poetry at the Great Grog site/blog.
You can find details there of the next event on Sunday 10 February (from 7.45pm/8pm or so, featuring Cheryl Follon, Hazel Frew, Sandy Hutchison, and Christie Williamson.
Over the next few months, readers will include AB Jackson, Kapka Kassabova, Helena Nelson, Michael Schmidt, Mike Stocks, Colin Will, and a host of other excellent poets.
In addition, Sandy Hutchison’s new volume of new and selected poems, Scales Dog, will be launched in Glasgow tomorrow evening, Sunday 3 February from 7.30pm - 10.00pm at the Polish Club, 5 Parkgrove Terrace, Glasgow, G3 7SD. There will be poetry and also music from something called the ‘Mr Scales Big Band,’ which sounds unmissable. Unfortunately, I will have to miss it, as I have a prior engagement that night, but no one else in the vicinity should be anywhere else.
