February. A month where nothing much happens, except Valentine’s Day, and really, who wants to think about that? Bring your half-price romantic chocolate selections, we’ll provide the wine, and three fantastic poets, to either blast away your blues, or buoy up your overflowing heart, whichever way you roll! We’ll also have a raffle, and you know what they say! Unlucky in love, probably very lucky in raffles.

So! Our line-up! We are unbelievably pleased to welcome Krystelle Bamford, Nadine Jassat and Meirion Jordan along, for poems and also, perhaps, some music with special guest Robbie Ward!

Krystelle Bamford’s poetry has appeared in The American Poetry Review, The Kenyon Review and a number of anthologies. She has been awarded a Scottish Book Trust New Writers Award and shortlisted for the Bridport Prize. Though raised in the US, she has been living in Scotland for the past eleven years where she worked at Canongate Books and completed an MLitt in Creative Writing at the University of St Andrews. She is currently finishing up her first full collection.

Nadine Aisha Jassat (Nadine Aisha) is the author of Still, a feminist poetry pamphlet, and has performed solo spoken word shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Just Festival and Audacious Women Festival. She was the debut Writer in Residence for YWCA Scotland – The Young Women’s Movement, and features in 404 Ink’s acclaimed Nasty Women, and has appeared at Aye Write – Glasgow’s Festival of Books, and Edinburgh International Book Festival. Her poem, ‘Hopscotch’, was made into a film-poem by award-winning filmmaker Roxana Vilk and executive produced by Amina Muslim Women’s Resource Centre, and was part of the official selection for the Women of the Lens film festival. In 2017, she was named by The Young Women’s Movement as one of their #30under30 women making a difference in Scotland.

Meirion Jordan is a poet and traditional musician from Cwmllynfell, Bro Cwmtawe. He has published three books of poetry, the first of which was shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best First Collection, and is currently working on a fourth book of poems as well as a debut novel set in 15th Century Wales. He is a Versopolis poet, and his work has been translated into almost all major European languages. He learned traditional fiddle whilst working on a PhD in Creative Writing in Norwich, and played with the popular Norfolk ceilidh band Stookey Blue.

Robbie Ward is a traditional musician and songwriter from Dundee. The son of Michael Ward (of the Tannahill Weavers), he was raised in a veritable shortbread tin of fiddle music, traditional songs, and poetry – traditions he continues in his own music. Besides performing solo, he has also appeared with Wire and Wool, AMWWF (Anderson, McGinty, Webster, Ward and Fisher), The Mackenzie Caledonian Pipe Band (with Ross Ainslie) and The Lost Todorovs. He won the Dundee Musician’s Award in 2017
