St Mungo's Mirrorball Mirrorball Poetry Showcase

St Mungo's Mirrorball Mirrorball Poetry Showcase

Another wonderful evening in store showcasing the work of three leading poets: Vahni Capildeo's sixth full-length book of poems and tenth publication is Venus as a Bear (Carcanet, 2018), shortlisted for the Forward Poetry Prizes Best Collection award. Capildeo's current projects include traditional masquerade, a seventh book, Skin Can Hold, and an intersemiotic collaboration with Chris McCabe. Gerrie Fellows reads from Uncommon Place, a new collection of poems from Shearsman, in which she explores the relationship of the walker with the shifting nature of the place through which she walks. Rooted in Scotland's mountains and open spaces, its fenced enclosures and mined ground, Uncommon Place develops from earlier books what one writer has called 'the most intelligent debate between technology and nature in poetry that I know.' Gerrie's five collections include The Body in Space and Window for a Small Blue Child. She lives in Glasgow and mentored a number of the Clydebuilt poets. Ross Wilson’s first full collection is published by Smokestack Books. He comes fae Kelty in Fife and lives in Condorrat, North Lanarkshire, with his partner and daughter. He works full time as an Auxiliary Nurse in Glasgow Royal Infirmary.
