All New Scottish
Just received my contributor’s copies of Poetry Scotland issue 62. “All New Scottish” consists entirely of work by writers from Scotland who haven’t featured in the magazine before. I have two poems in there: “MacAdam’s Lament for Island Life” and “Onding”. Hard to believe, perhaps, that I’ve never been in PS, but I’d just never submitted before.
I’ve not yet taken a close look at much of the work in this issue but, on the first page, I liked the wry wit and imagination of Eddie Gibbons‘s “Certain Things”. Good to see Ross Wilson has a piece in it too. I liked his recent work in Horizon.
Sally Evans, the PS editor, also sent me issue 61 — “Just One Bookshop” — which promises to be good. Marion McCready has several poems in it; there are pieces by Colin Will; and Katy Evans-Bush‘s marvellous “Richard Price” graces the back page. Worth getting hold of for that one alone, and PS costs only £1.
