From GLASGOW VOICES to MEXICAN POETS

As performance indicators go, the percentage of the audience that accompanies you to the bar after an event is a good one. And if, when that first bar closes, a fair chunk of the group moves on to a second, you know the evening has definitely been a success.

Not only in these terms: the ‘Glasgow Voices’ event on 8 April was a great success. Click on ‘PHOTOS – Glasgow Voices’ (Column 2) to see a slideshow of some photos. And on the Link for the international literary quarterly (Column 3) to go straight to the ‘Glasgow Voices’ feature.

The Scottish Writers’ Centre joins editor Peter Robertson in hoping you enjoy the work of the 40 contributors.

We look forward to building on the success of Thursday evening with the Three Mexican Poets event on 29 April. For ease of reference, full details are reproduced below:

THREE MEXICAN POETS

Thursday 29 April at 7pm

CCA 5, Glasgow — ADMISSION FREE

‘First come, first served’

NOT ticketed

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

2010 is the 100th anniversary of the Mexican Revolution. To mark the occasion, the Scottish Writers’ Centre will team up with St Mungo’s Mirrorball (Glasgow) and the Poetry Translation Centre (London) to present a trio of Mexican poets: Coral Bracho and David Huerta (who write in Spanish) and Victor Teran (who writes in Zapotec, an indigenous and endangered Mexican language). Coral is translated by Katherine Pierpoint & Tom Boll; David by Jamie McKendrick & Tom Boll; and Victor by David Shook. Expect an evening of readings and lively discussion! And other Mexican treats!

*****

The reading will finish by 8.30pm – but discussions can continue in the bar.

The Scottish Writers’ Centre is grateful to the CCA and to Culture & Sport Glasgow for their generous support of its work.

Remember: the event is NOT ticketed!

CCA 5, this time!

And: first come, first served!
