What a great night on 24 November at the Scottish Writers’ Centre for the regular Speakeasy session – a place where every Scottish poet and writer can be heard. Charlie Gracie finished the evening off with a selection new and old poems.
There was a wonderful range of writers, some of whom were new to the Scottish Writers’ Centre. Among the new faces, watch out for Rebecca Gault in future: a fantastic Scottish poet who wraps her work in great rhythms. Edward Brosckett’s untitled piece was delivered wonderfully and really enjoyable.
Frances Corr, too (not a new writer, of course), was amazing and her poetry, so strongly delivered, had us laughing one minute and stunned the next. Ruby McCann described Frances as the Glaswegian Bukowski.
Great organisation of the night from Maxine, Scott and Ruby, so thanks you all.
