A showcase of poets who contributed to Scotia Extremis, a poetry anthology edited by Brian Johnstone and Andy Jackson.

Blackwell’s Bookshop, South Bridge | Presented by Luath Press

Blackwell's are delighted to be hosting the launch of 'Scotia Extremis' in our South Bridge store. Editors Andy Jackson and Brian Johnstone bring together a wide range of Scotland’s best-known contemporary poetic voices to celebrate the country’s culture and personality through spoken work, from Laphroaig versus Buckfast, to Oor Wullie against Black Bob, to Jimmy Shand meeting Jack Bruce, and Cullen Skink taking on Irn-Bru. Featuring such poets as Jackie Kay, Angus Peter Campbell, Stewart Conn, Liz Niven, Donald S Murray and more than 100 more, these vivid poems bring to life the people, places and motifs that form the complex and contradictory soul of Scotland.
