Come along to the library on the 25th of March to see the launch of the first volumes from the House of Three, a wonderful new poetry press.
This new press has published three volumes of poetry, with nine contributing artists who have each created new works for the project.
These incredible women are all currently Scotland based but come from a range of backgrounds and have a wide range of styles. As a taste of what to expect, here is a little information on the artists. For more information and to read their works, please go their websites and (even better!) come to the launch!
Tessa Berring is based in Edinburgh and is an artist as well as a writer. Her works intertwine as her writing compliments and responds to her artwork as well as found objects and her own personal history.
Jane Bonnyman is also from Edinburgh and had her first poetry pamphlet publish in 2016. Her writing is often inspired by her historical research.
Marjorie Lotfi Gill has done work with the library before. Her work is ekphrastic in nature, sometimes working from photographs. She has also created the Belonging Project, which runs workshops and exhibitions and looks at the experiences of refugees.
Pippa Goldschmidt writes works, including poetry and short stories inspired by science and is the writer-in-residence for the University of Edinburgh’s Science Technology and Innovation Unit.
Nalini Paul is a Glasgow based writer and has also worked with the library before. Her work is inspired by landscape, migration and memory. She has done various collaborations with other artists and has written from film and stage.
Katie Ailes is a spoken word poet with the collective Loud Poets. She has competed in slam poetry all across Scotland.
Iona Lee is another Slam poet and gained the title Scottish Slam Champion in 2016. She studies illustration and often accompanies her writing with her own art.
Logie Fielding writes poetry often themed around nature, often looking at different methods or angles of observation.
Katy Ewing is a rural based writer and artist. Her work often goes to dark and uneasy places as she explores themes such as childhood and memory.
House of Three aims to create beautiful books that show case the work of both established and emerging female writers, a wonderful goal that strongly connects to the GWL’s own philosophy. We’re very excited to see the launch and experience the incredible works of these women. Please come along and celebrate with us.
The book launch is on the 25th of March from 2.00pm to 4.00 pm. For more information please check the Glasgow Women’s Library website.
