Book Launch: Be the First to Like This, New Scottish Poetry

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.
