Join us on Tuesday 9/8/22 for Raw Poetry: 35 Years of Tower of Babble with Jim Ferguson, Graham Fulton and Bobby Christie.

09082022-Raw Poetry eventTower of Babble

The first Itinerant publication. A collaboration between four of the writers from Tom Leonard’s Paisley writers’ group: Jim Ferguson, Graham Fulton, Bobby Christie & Ronald McNeil.

“Reaffirms the vitality of the small publication … no slickness here, just men looking outside the wonders of their own experience to a world in need of creative interpretation … no amount of fine-toothed criticism will diminish the freshness and insight of Tower of Babble. Humility of purpose allows one scope beyond the self, and from this springs the seed of inspired poetry”.

Cheryl Foster, The List

“Ability to raise a dry laugh from what would make grown men greit comes through all the greyness of the environment out of which this kind of poetry evolves”.

James Robertson, Radical Scotland
