The Bakehouse goes digital with Kathleen Jamie

April 10th 7.15 for 7.30pm

The Bakehouse is thrilled to be hosting Kathleen Jamie as our third virtual guest of 2021. Expect another stimulating Bakehouse evening with one of the finest poets in Scotland. If you’ve enjoyed Gerda Stevenson and John Glenday you will certainly enjoy this! Awards include the prestigious Eric Gregory Award, The Forward Prize, and the Scottish Book of the Year Award to name but a few.  Reviews for both poetry and prose are laudatory. Kathleen will be reading from her ’Selected Poems’ and her new, hybrid forms. Sounds fascinating! Do join us. Looking forward to another great night in! 

 ‘Jamie’s shape-shifting, metaphorical imagination startles the mind awake.’  The Guardian

‘With each successive theme to which Jamie turns her vision she brings the gift of insight…poetry of stunning clarity and musicality.’ The Scotsman


Bakings is The Bakehouse’s new online literary magazine – poems submitted by invitation alongside recordings of featured poets from previous Bakehouse events. Trawl through the site to find fine poetry from Scotland and beyond alongside film poems and illustrations. We’ll be sending videos out  intermittently to a growing national and international database. Videos have been filmed by artist Ken Smyth at The Bakehouse, or submitted courtesy of various clever folk on personal technology. Enjoy.
