The Little Sparta Trust has published an eBook based on the blog posts I made during my Sharing Little Sparta residency in 2016.  The eBook can be read online at ISSUU, and also downloaded as a (large) pdf file.  Many thanks to Lynne Maclagan, George Gilliland, and to the Estate of Ian Hamilton Finlay.

Free Poetry Scotland Anthology

I’ve edited a pamphlet anthology of current Scottish poetry for Martin Corless-Smith’s FREE POETRY imprint in Boise, Idaho.  The poets included are Dorothy Alexander, Christina Chalmers, Calum Gardner, Katy Hastie, Colin Herd, MacGillivray, nick-e melville, Iain Morrison, Nisha Ramayya and Kathrine Sowerby.  The publisher encourages the reproduction of this chapbook and its free distribution, ad infinitum.

Here are electronic copies of the anthology files:

Free Poetry Scotland Anthology (458k pdf) [edited 26 March: some formatting improved]

Free Poetry Scotland Cover (52k pdf)  [edited 15 March: the cover link should work now!]

Thanks to Martin, and to Colin Johnson and Tessy Ward for their work on the anthology.
