StAnza Map - Poems about Scotland

Thanks to Eleanor Livingstone and her fellow poets in Scotland, my Lewis Chessman poem has just been added to the StAnza poetry map of Scotland, and you can find it here.

In 2014 during Scotland’s Year of Homecoming, StAnza set itself the challenge to see if the shape and nature of Scotland could be drawn entirely in poetry. The map continues to fill up with poem-flags, which you can see here.  

My poem, 'Lament of a Lewis Chessman' was first published in my chapbook, The Holy Place, co-authored with John Dotson, and published by The Seventh Quarry (2012) in conjunction with Cross- Cultural Communications (New York).

Slow Things Anthology at The Emma Press

Editor Emma Wright and co-editor Rachel Piercey at The Emma Press are compiling an anthology on the theme of Slow Things.

It will include one of my poems about a slow creature (but not a Roman snail, as pictured!). More details to follow.
