Workshop: Writing Rebellion

November 20 | 11:00 - 13:00

St Andrews Adults Workshop Poetry

Join us for a workshop with poet Hugh McMillan, where we'll be reading and writing poetry on the theme of rebellion. We're asking how poets have historically responded to and engaged with protest in their times - be it political, social or religious - in order to explore how poetry can be political without being polemical. We'll then use this as a starting point to produce new work. Hugh McMillan has seen his work published widely in Scotland and beyond. He's won a number of awards for his poetry, most recently the Callum Macdonald Memorial Award in 2017, and has published six full-length collections in addition to numerous pamphlets. His most recent collection, Heliopolis, appeared in 2018.
