Monday, Sept 20th, Artpost hosted a very special poetry reading by well-known Scottish poet Roddy Lumsden. Roddy has published five award-winning collections of poetry, a number of chapbooks and a collection of trivia, as well as editing a now-famous generational anthology of new British and Irish poets, Identity Parade.
Roddy Lumsden lives in London, England where he teaches creative writing for The Poetry School and edits the Pilot series of chapbooks by poets under 30 for Tall Lighthouse. A well-known figure on the live circuit, he is organiser and host of the monthly reading series BroadCast. In 2010, he was also appointed as Commissioning Editor for Salt Publishing.
We created a YouTube channel highlighting a few of the poems he read that night:
