Let’s be kind about the bird


IMG_5351In collaboration with The Edwin Morgan Trust & Glasgow University, Speculative Books has published this collection guest-edited by Colin Herd.

Before he published his first collection of poetry, Edwin Morgan made a series of visually arresting, playful, dynamic scrapbooks. A queer visual diary, a catalogue of images, and a surreal bricolage, the scrapbooks were a resource and a testing ground as Morgan developed his distinctively experimental and anti-orthodox poetics. 

Really pleased to have a poem written collaboratively with Tessa Berring – Let’s be kind about the bird – included in this collection of dynamic responses to Edwin Morgan’s scrapbooks.

Copies available here.
