Vivien Jones is launching her new collection of poetry Short of Breath at several launch events in Scotland, including at Blackwell’s Edinburgh on 4 December 2014 and at a Tea Party at Brodie’s in Moffat on 11 December 2014.
Scottish poet Gordon Meade has just returned to live in his native Scotland, and will be reading from Sounds of the Real World at Platform Poetry and Music Night in Fife on 6 December 2014.
Michael Curtis launches The Fire in Me Now at Poetry @ The Chapel, Broadstairs on 9 December 2014. The Chapel is both a pub and a bookshop – a fitting setting for a book launch.
For more details of these and other events – Maria C McCarthy at Roundabout Nights in Chatham on 1 December and Rose Cook at the Artizan Gallery, Torquay, on 8 December – go to Events.

You can use the same code to buy our anthology Unexplored Territory for £5. This features poetry and short stories by 17 different writers.
