Next event: Writers at Pleasance

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.

Alan 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.

Claire Askew's 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 Faceboo…
