The Federation of Writers (Scotland)


National Poetry Day  1st October 2020

FWS celebrated National Poetry Day 2020 with  readings from a range of poets including our Makar Finola Scott. Marie Therese thoroughly enjoyed hosting the event and introducing some of our regular readers. The organisers were also delighted to welcome some poets who were making their Federation debut. The event also saw the debut of this year’s Patchwork Poem , Unseen on the theme of vision,  the title being created by one of the contributors.  Unseen was stitched  into being  by Andy Jackson. We hope to upload the accompanying video imminently. The Federation was proud to offer,  as an  extra bonus, a reading from former Makar Sheila Templeton, winner of this year’s James Mc Cash Scots Poetry Prize with The Clyack Shafe (meaning the last harvest sheaf).

A wonderful afternoon of poetry. Congratulations and thanks to all those who contributed. The Federation is delighted and grateful to be able to offer members the opportunity to continue to showcase their work in these challenging times.
