We are sitting by a river in Pollock park in Glasgow. Can you hear the birds, I saw a duck over there a minute ago. It’s a hot day, the sun is out but we are under a tree. We’re going to do a book launch.

We have invited, 40 poets to come along and do a wee reading by this stream, it’s not a live stream, this stream is pre-recorded!

This online podcast book launch is part of the Edwin Morgan Centenary. we were asked by the Edwin Morgan Foundation to make a book of writing inspired by Edwin Morgan, and specifically, his scrap books.

Edwin Morgan is widely recognised as one of the foremost Scottish poets of the 20th century. In 1999, Morgan was made the first Glasgow Poet Laureate and the 27th of April would have been his hundredth birthday.

Before he published his first collection of poetry, Edwin Morgan made a series of visually arresting, playful, dynamic scrapbooks. A queer visual diary, a catalogue of images, and a surreal bricolage, the scrapbooks were a resource and a testing ground as Morgan developed his distinctively experimental and anti-orthodox poetics. 

Speculative Books have teamed up with The Edwin Morgan Foundation and Glasgow University to bring you The Centenary Collection, a collection inspired by those scrap books.

Colin Herd held work shops around the scrap books and was the editor for the collection.

The book is available now! You can buy it from SpeculativeBooks.net

Thank you to all the contributors, thank you to the Edwin Morgan Foundation for contacting us, thank you to Colin Herd for putting together such an excellent collection. 

And Thank you to Edwin Morgan - The Original Glasgow Poet Laureate. Happy birthday!
