Poetry Master Classes

My long experience of making and editing poems and helping to establish a living environment for poetry in Scotland through the Scottish Poetry Library, as a Royal Literary Fund Writing Fellow, as president of Scottish PEN, in setting up the Callum Macdonald Memorial Award for pamphlet poetry, and in establishing the Golden Thread poetry readings during the Edinburgh Festival, gives me an unusual insight into how poetry can be of interest not just as something to read but as a way of thinking and understanding in general and as a tool for activists.

Master Classes in poetry, one to one, can be arranged at a fee of 30 for one and a half hours, working on not more than six poems. Please write, phone or e-mail to arrange a preliminary discussion if you are interested, so that terms and arrangements can be made.
