Ryan wants to Be the First to Like This

September 23, 2014

Really excited to be involved with a new anthology of Scottish poems edited by Colin Waters, Be the First to Like This, launching on Thursday 25 September at the Scottish Poetry Library. Tickets are free, but booking is essential. There are a bunch of really talented poets included, some you might already know, some you’ll be delighted to meet. The launch kicks off at 6.30pm, there will be wine, chat and poems. Hope to see you there.

Be the First to Like This: New Scottish Poetry is an anthology gathering together Scotland’s new generation of poets.

Here, the classically formal mixes with the wildly experimental. Subjects are as diverse as texting, fancying film stars, dole offices, quantum physics, and Richard Branson; the common denominator is modernity, a sense these are poems that could only have been written in the early twenty-first century.

A selection of the poets featured in the anthology will read at the launch.
