Red Squirrel Press Showcase

Friday 9 March, 13:00 - 14:00
The Town Hall, Queens Gardens - Council Chamber

Reading: Colin Will, Judith Taylor, Elizabeth Rimmer

Treat your ears as Red Squirrel Press showcases three poets on their Scottish list. Elizabeth Rimmer describes herself as Catholic, radical, feminist and green, and is an editor and translator as well as a poet. Immediate and evocative, her poems are rooted in a strong sense of place. Elizabeth’s third collection from Red Squirrel, Haggards, is due out in 2018. Judith Taylor’s poem ‘The Lapland Woman and the Finland Woman’ was chosen as one of the Scottish Poetry Library's Best Scottish Poems of 2014. The poem sets the tone for her first full-length collection, Not in Nightingale Country (2017): wry, warm and steeped in re-imagined myth. Colin Will has had eight poetry collections, one haibun collection and one short story collection published. His most recent collection of poetry, The Night I Danced With Maya, appeared with Red Squirrel Press in 2017. His new work explores the blurred boundaries between poetry and short fiction.

Red Squirrel Press was founded in April 2006 by Sheila Wakefield and has published almost 200 titles to date, both full-length collections and pamphlets.
