Apologies for the gap in the news. It is not that we have been doing nothing but that fates have a habit of ganging up on us. Mo and George have decided to close the bookshop in West Kilbride. The shutters come down at the end of August. We hope to have a read Raw bash in the shop so watch the site for details. Meantime stock is reduced by 50% so if you feel like a day out down the coast have a browse.
Last year we organised events in Paisley in celebration of Robert Tannahill and as part of this a poetry wall was set up in the town centre. In conjunction with Renfrewshire Museums and Arts, Read Raw Press are producing a collection of the best poetry from the wall along with some guest poets. Wullie has been busy getting this ready for the printer. We rather take for granted his ability to do this and run the website and all this while fighting off one of those summer bugs.
Early September you can hear Read Raw reading at the Callendar Poetry Weekend.
