An Evening of Poetry
Thursday, June 23 at 7pm

It wouldn’t be Cupar Arts Festival without a night of stand-out poetry at one of the town’s finest watering holes, and this year is no different. Join us at Ti Amo to hear from these six poets, all of whom are past or current PhD students of Creative Writing and include:

Russell Jones, an Edinburgh-base editor and writer. He has published four collections of poetry and is the deputy editor of Shoreline of Infinity, a new Scottish sci-fi magazine. He likes karaoke and White Russians.

Aileen Ballantyne, a national newspaper journalist turned poet whose investigative journalism has twice been commended in the British Press Awards. She is this year’s winner of both the Mslexia Prize for Poetry and of the short poem category in the International Poetry on the Lake competition at Orta San Giulio in Italy. Aileen now works as a tutor in Contemporary Poetry and English and Scottish Literature at the University of Edinburgh.

Lauren Pope, who is pursuing a Creative Writing PhD at the University of Edinburgh. Her writing has appeared in numerous journals and online publications including the Edinburgh Review and Etchings. She is a recipient of a Greenberg Poetry Fellowship, an Orkney Writers’ Bursary and the Grierson Verse Prize.

Jonathan Bay, a Creative Writing PhD student at the University of Edinburgh. He has been published in The Inkwell, Hearts and Minds, Gutter and most recently won the Jupiter Artland Inspired to Write competition. He enjoys traveling.

Rebecca Tamás, who studied for an MA in poetry at Edinburgh University, and is now pursuing a PhD in Creative and Critical Writing at the University of East Anglia. Rebecca’s first poetry pamphlet, The Ophelia Letters, came out with Salt in 2013, and she has most recently been published in The White ReviewBest British Poetry 2015 and The Morning Star. Rebecca’s favourite things include maudlin folk songs and the genius Canadian poet Anne Carson. She is currently working on a first collection titled ‘WITCH.’

Marianne MacRae, a poet and comedian working in Edinburgh. She is currently undertaking a PhD in Creative Writing at the University of Edinburgh, researching the use of talking animals in poetry.

This is a free event and no booking is required.
