Right from the off, please note that this episode contains some strong language and sexual themes.

Welcome back, all! Your old friend, the Scottish Writers’ Centre Podcast is back for another episode of literary joy. Back in January 2017, we welcome two accomplished, entertaining, and talented poets from the wilds of Dumfries and Galloway.

You’re about to hear Hugh McMillan and Stuart A. Paterson discuss and share readings on Solway seascapes, sheep, the Large Hadron Collider and a multitude of other matters. I must confess, I (Mark) wasn’t actually at this event, so I’ll be listening along with fresh ears. Its timing was prescient too: a few months later, Hugh was awarded the post of Michael Marks poet in residence at the Harvard Summer School and Stuart was appointed BBC Scotland’s poet in residence!

The Scottish Writers’ Centre proudly presents to you: ‘Galloway Comes to Glasgow’ with, Hugh McMillan and Stuart A. Paterson!

Many thanks to Hugh and Stuart for sharing your poetry, cheerful anecdotes and fascinating facts about your home. Hugh came back to the Scottish Writers’ Centre in June this year and Stuart will be part of our special in conversation event later this month.  Therefore, if you enjoyed this episode there are plenty more treats for you further down the line!

The accompanying event blog was written by Katherine Warren and you can read it here.
