Encounter the late, great Scottish poet through selected images from his archive

The W.S. Graham estate archive contains original artwork by the poet himself, previously unseen photographs, unpublished poems, and manuscript drafts with handwritten edits, including versions of 'Loch Thom' and 'Untidy Dreadful Table'. To complement the launch at StAnza of a new anthology paying tribute to Graham, as well as a Past & Present session on the poet, the W.S. Graham centenary project, Language is Where the People Are, shares in this installation a selection of their favourite images from the archive.

In association with Language is Where the People Are, the W.S. Graham Centenary Project, and supported by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland.
