I had planned to bypass May at the Great Grog, skipping straight to the 8th June. However, there now will be a Great Grog gig in May!
The date will be Sunday 11th May from 8pm at the Great Grog Bar on 43 Rose Street, Edinburgh. And the programme is excellent:
Alan Gillis (his latest collection, 'Hawks and Doves', was nominated for this year's TS Eliot Prize)
Sally Evans (editor of Poetry Scotland and author of several collections, including her latest, "The Bees," just out)
Barbara Smith (debut collection, 'Kairos', was published by Doghouse Press last year)
Claire Askew (21 years old, poetry soon to be published in the Edinburgh Review)
An updated programme for 2008-09 is now up at the Poetry at the Great Grog site.
