Saturday February 29th 7.00 for 7.30
The Galloway Launch of their joint pamphlet BEARINGS, the first publication from The Poets’ Republic Press.
Joy is in an exciting place, re-inventing herself as a poet in her own ‘write’ after a long lifetime editing the iconic Chapman magazine. She has an Honorary Doctorate from Edinburgh University and, last year, joined the ranks of Saltire Society’s Outstanding Women of Scotland. Joy partners popular local poet Katy Ewing, winner of the Wigtown Poetry Competition’s Dumfries and Galloway Fresh Voice Award 2018 bringing together two diversely talented Scottish voices in a Galloway Launch of their wonderful joint pamphlet.
‘Katy’s work has a beguiling and deceptive simplicity ... poems of thoughtful understated beauty’.
‘Joy’s poetry combines insight with wonderful lyricism’. Hugh McMillan
