A unique poetry festival taking place at venues across the City of Glasgow.
Through performances, exhibitions, creative symposia and readings, we’ll explore the margins of poetic activity, ask what lies beyond poetry and interrogate the structures that delimit poetic engagement.
All events associated with the festival are free and open to the public. Some have limited capacity and are expected to book up quickly. Our partner venues include: Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow Women’s Library, University of Glasgow, MANY Studios, The Lighthouse, and Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.Find out more »

We have always envisioned the poet-in-society as one who restores meaning to language. We believe a large part of the fight against demagoguery and hate occurs on the premises of language. Please join us at our largest fundraiser and community-building (and sustaining) event of the year as 150 poets and artists cast and catalyze our voices!

Icons in Ash, Cremation Portraits an exhibition of my work at Ubu Gallery inspired this concert, in which we try to reintegrate life and death: to touch death, work with death, to let it speak in its mundanity, its grandeur, its familiarity and its mystery, its uniqueness and its universality, to redeem it from oblivion, to give it its own life again.
We have isolated or banished death from our lives, we cannot bear to look it in the face, as if we are embarrassed by it, the simple fact of grief makes it obvious that a different relationship is not only possible, but that it is necessary.
We want to celebrate that we are women, that we have been always responsible for dealing with the dying and dead and as Judith Butler observes that the phenomenon of mourning tells us that death is inherently social. If we want to be able to understand and to live with it, we have to reintegrate it into our social being.
And that's the purpose of this concert and of course celebrate my new book Icons in Ash as well
