A.C. Clarke, who lives in Glasgow, is a prize-winning poet who has had three full collections published, Breathing Each Other In (Blinking Eye Publishers 2005), Messages of Change (Oversteps Books 2008) and most recently Fr Meslier's Confession, inspired by the atheist priest, Jean Meslier (Oversteps Books 2012). Her pamphlet A Natural Curiosity, inspired by Glasgow?s Museum of Anatomy, was published by New Voices Press in 2011. She will be reading from Fr Meslier?s Confession at the Dartington Ways With Words festival in July.
Amy Anderson was brought up in North Wales and has been writing since she moved to Glasgow in 2007. After being taught by Donny O? Rourke in 2010, she gained a place on the Clydebuilt Mentoring Scheme (St Mungo?s Mirrorball and Glasgow Life) to support developing poets at the beginning of their publishing careers. Amy has been published widely in magazines and journals and her debut Pamphlet A Clever Inference of Light to be published soon, explores the consciousness of the urban and the rural, the manmade and the natural and the shifting tones of nationality. And from the rain songs of windswept Glasgow to the music of her native Wales, she searches for the ways in which the spiritual inhabit all these dimensions.
