Welcome to the W.S. Graham centenary pages, hosted by the Scottish Poetry Library on behalf of the estate of W.S. Graham, and part of the estate’s centenary project ‘Language is Where the People Are’. These pages will help you keep up to date with news of centenary events, poems and publications, and offer a gallery of previously unseen images of the author and a selection of materials from the estate archives.
The title of the centenary project is taken from Graham’s poem ‘The Dark Dialogues’, and reflects key themes in the author’s work: the difficulty of communication, the importance of community, and the need for humour. The project is supported by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland.
We invite you to celebrate the life and work of this major Scottish poet.
