The Propriety of Weeding, my sixth poetry collection, will be published in September 2012 by Red Squirrel Scotland.
Two launches are planned, and all are welcome to either or both. They are free.
The Edinburgh launch is on Tuesday 18th September, 8pm, in The Persevere, at the bottom of Easter Road, Edinburgh.
The Glasgow launch is on Tuesday 2nd October, 7pm, in the upstairs bar at Committee Room 9, Cochrane Street, Glasgow (round from the City Chambers). This event is part of Glas-Goes Poetic, a week-long celebration of poetry in Glasgow. There will be guest readers and an open mike session at this event.
The title? The gardener’s bothy in the Summer Palace, Beijing, is called The Lodge of the Propriety of Weeding.
