About the Book
This anthology promises more of the up-and-coming and established names in British poetry, who have all shared the Neu! Reekie! bill. Many of the works are new, many are favourites read at the events; all are savoured, sublime, sumptuous voices within poetry already.
Contributors include: Jackie Kay, Kathleen Jamie and Liz Lochhead as well as younger poets: Rachel McCrum and Ryan van Winkle and poets from the spoken word circuit: Luke Wright and Ross Sutherland. Accompanying the book is a downloadable compilation album.
Michael Pedersen has published two successful chapbooks and an acclaimed debut collection Play with Me (Polygon, 2013). His second collection, Oyster, surfaced in 2017 and was illustrated by – and performed as a live show with – Frightened Rabbit’s Scott Hutchison. Pedersen was: named a ‘Canongate Future 40’; a finalist in the 2018 Writer of the Year at the Herald Scottish Culture Awards; awarded the John Mather Trust Rising Star of Literature Award 2014; and won the 2015 Robert Louis Stevenson Fellowship – travelling to Grez-sur-Loing in France. Pedersen also co-runs and co-founded Neu! Reekie! – a prize winning arts collective, known for producing cutting-edge shows all over the globe and hosting take-overs for National Galleries, National Museums and major festivals.
