Past & Present: Edwin Morgan

Tuesday 9 March, 18:30 - 19:15
StAnza Online
This event took place in 2021

StAnza’s regular Past & Present strand goes audio with Free Vers(e)

If you’re looking to discover new favourite poets or to learn about writers you thought you knew from surprising angles, then our Past & Present sessions are the thing for you. For today’s event we’re partnering up with Free Vers(e), a podcast on queer poetry and history hosted by Éadaoín Lynch and our own Annie Rutherford.

In this StAnza/Free Vers(e) crossover, they’ll be talking about the inaugural Scots Makar, Edwin Morgan, a much loved poet and translator, whose serious dedication to playful experimentation remained a constant throughout his life. They're joined by poet and writer Andrés Nicolás Ordorica, who'll be sharing his love for all things Edwin Morgan and chatting about his filmpoem project responding to Morgan, which received a Second Life grant from the Edwin Morgan trust.

In partnership with Free Vers(e)
