Poetry at the Royal Scottish Academy

Any readers based in Edinburgh or Scotland way, the Poetry Beyond Text project is now being exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy. My contribution to the project is a selection of poems presented in an artists’ book, with images from my wonderful, remarkably talented collaborator (and curator of the exhibition), Mary Modeen. Other work features splendid contributions from poets including Robin Robertson, Deryn Rees-Jones and John Burnside. Find out more here.

Work and Days

I am delighted to say that I was appointed editor of Parthian at the beginning of this month. I’ll be joined by Jon Gower as associate editor. Jon is a noted broadcaster, as well as a superb fictioneer, and I am so pleased to be working with him on what we hope will turn out to be another great chapter in Parthian’s ongoing success story.

We are currently welcoming unsolicited submissions. If you’re interested in finding out more about what we publish and/or how to submit, please visit the About Us section of the website, take a tour of some of our authors (ranging from Niall Griffiths to Stevie Davies to Rachel Trezise and so many more), and then carefully read our guidelines. Along the way, you might find you want to pick up one of our many award-winning and critically acclaimed titles as a winter warmer.

This blog will, of course, keep going; it always does. But if I am occasionally quiet, please bear with me. I am probably reading a great book. And you know where that can lead.
