Our next event is in collaboration with Literature Society: Writers at Pleasance!
We invite you to join us at the Pleasance to hear from a variety of
up-and-coming writers, both from around Edinburgh and further afield.
Headlining the event are Alan Gillis and Claire Askew.
Gillis is a poet and a member of the English Literature department. He
has published four collections of poetry, and was recently named a "Next
Generation Poet" by the the Poetry Book Society, following in the
footsteps of Don Paterson and Carol Anne Duffy.
poetry has appeared in numerous publications, including The Guardian,
Poetry Scotland, PANK and Popshot. Her debut pamphlet, The Mermaid and
the Sailors, was published in spring 2011 by Red Squirrel Press and was
shortlisted for a 2010 Eric Gregory Award. She is currently reading for
a PhD in Creative Writing at the University of Edinburgh.
Should be an excellent evening. We hope to see you there! Link to the Facebook event here.
