The Estate of W.S. Graham presents Language is Where the People Are
A journey through the life and work of Greenock-born poet W.S. Graham, featuring readings
from some of Scotland’s
most acclaimed poets, recently discovered audio and video, and
soundscapes by composer Gerry Diver.
MC Jim Carruth will be joined by Rachael Boast, Robert Crawford, Kathleen Jamie and
Marion McCready. W.N. Herbert
will present a talk, ‘Seven Words for Sydney Graham’,
and the winners of the Scottish Youth Poetry Slam 2018 and the Inverclyde
Competition will showcase their poems.
Part of the centenary project ‘Language is Where the People Are’,
supported by the National
Lottery through Creative Scotland
I'm very much looking forward to participating in this event next month, wonderful to be able to celebrate W.S. Graham in his home town!
