March so far has been an interesting Month for Read Raw. Mo continues to labour away in Books in the West with two events to organise. All this while finalising her poetry collection. She has also been one of Jim Ferguson’s guest poets for the launch of Soldier’s Return in the Scotia Bar, an evening which started well when George won the Tenner Poetry Slam and continued on its successful vein with the launch introduced by Ian. The book was well received. Copies are available this month at the launch price of £5 so email to the site to order. firstname.lastname@example.org
Also at the Scotia is the short story competition. Wullie, Ian and George are in the final on March 23rd. In the opinion of most Mo should be there as well.
In a busy period of performance Mo, Wullie and George read at the Ivory, Ian having been one of the featured readers in February. Wullie and George were honoured to take part in a charity night at the Griffin Bar in Glasgow for Revive MS Scotland. Wullie gave a stand out performance of his fishing fleet poems. If you have not heard this you must for he weaves his poetry through song.
