Join us for the Scottish launch of a new anthology in which poetry engages with polemics

New pants for old! The political changes which have shaped much of the past two years were heralded in the UK with the 2015 General Election which swept away old certainties and introduced a plurality of regional, generational and class identities. Bill Herbert and Andy Jackson published a poem a day by a range of poets over the first hundred days of the government, responding to the new unrealpolitik. The poems are now brought together in a book, New Boots and Pantisocracies, with writing by a whole host of compelling voices. Join us for the Scottish launch of an anthology which promises a healthy dose of poetry and polemics.

Presented in partnership with J&G Innes
