An excellent evening of poetry in store with three wonderful poets. Award winning poet Colette Bryce, originally from Northern Ireland, is joined by poet, writer and land artist Gerry Loose and Marion McCready, recent winner of the Melita Hune Poetry Prize.

Colette Bryce
Colette Bryce was born in Derry, Northern Ireland. She lived in London for some years before moving to Scotland in 2002, and later to the North of England where she currently works as a freelance writer. Her poetry collections with Picador include The Full Indian Rope Trick (2004), Self-Portrait in the Dark (2008), and The Whole & Rain-domed Universe, short-listed for this year’s Forward Prize. From 2009 to 2013 she was Poetry Editor at Poetry London. She received the Cholmondeley Award in 2010.

Gerry Loose
Gerry Loose is a poet, writer and land-artist who works primarily with subjects from the natural world, as well as the world of geo-politics. His poems and texts are as often found in built and natural settings as on the page. Among his most recent publications are Printed on Water, New and Selected Poems (Shearsman Books) and that person himself. Forthcoming is fault line (Vagabond Voices, September 2014). His awards include: Creative Scotland Award, Robert Louis Stevenson Fellowship, Kooneen Säätiö Award, and Hermann Kesten Award.
