‘Have Yourself A Literary Christmas’
with Guest Writer, Jim Ferguson
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And, at the SWC we’re getting ready to rock around the Christmas tree with the spotlight on guest writer, Jim Ferguson. Please join us and bring along something to read, perform, or slam and share the season’s festivities. We’re going to make it an evening to remember!!!
Dust of those works in progress and put on your best prose for a night of literary readings, and creating – perhaps even utilising audience contributions. Join us for an evening of shared writing experiences with Glasgow writer, Jim Ferguson in a Speakeasy-style open mic night!
Jim Ferguson is a poet and prose-writer based in Glasgow. Publications include the novel ‘Punk Fiddle’, poetry pamphlets ‘My Bonnie Scotland’ and ‘Songs to Drown a Million Souls’: and diary-style musings on the Scottish independence referendum campaign of 2014 entitled ‘The Pine-Box-Jig Involves no Dancing’. A review in ‘Northwords’ of his poetry cd ‘More than Quirky’ states: ‘Ferguson’s strong Glaswegian accent is striking and his voice is forcefully expressive, most particularly when reading words and phrases from the Glaswegian dialect… In all poems there is a conviction in the reading, at times both poignant and haunting.’ He works as a Creative Writing Tutor at Glasgow Kelvin College (Easterhouse Campus). Jim recently launched his latest publication, For Eva: Selected Poems 1990 -2016 (2017) More information on Jim:
Calling all writers, join us for a taste of Scotland’s new and emerging writers and the best of new literature in action. We’re currently seeking submissions from writers to read their work. Submissions will be accepted at info@scottishwriterscentre
