Two poets from Dumfries and Galloway launch new books: Hugh McMillan’s ‘Not Actually Being in Dumfries’ (Luath Press), selected poems from over thirty years of writing, and ‘Border Lines’ (Indigo Dreams), poems drawn from Stuart A Paterson’s life in Galloway and his first collection in eighteen years. Both shine a lyrical and sharp light onto life in an often neglected part of Scotland. Entertainment is guaranteed from two of Scotland’s most accomplished and underrated poets. Free entry.

Stuart was born in 1966 and raised in Ayrshire in a Scots-speaking household. From 1989 until 1996 he founded and edited the international poetry and prose review ‘Spectrum’. In 1992 he was awarded an Eric Gregory Award and in 2014 was awarded a Robert Louis Stevenson Fellowship from the Scottish Book Trust. ‘Saving Graces’ was published by diehard in 1997. His work has been widely published and anthologised in the UK and overseas.He is currently the Scots Language Society’s ‘Poet in Residence’.

Hugh is a poet raised in Dumfries. He was a winner in the Smith/Doorstep Pamphlet Prize, the Callum MacDonald Prize and the Cardiff International Poetry Competition. He has also been shortlisted for the Michael Marks Prize, the Basil Bunting Poetry Award and the Bridport Prize. He has had five full collections published, numerous pamphlets, and has just completed a book about modern legends of Dumfries and Galloway, the first work commissioned by the Wigtown Book Festival.
