Erskine Writers had the pleasure of a visit from The Herald Poetry Editor, Lesley Duncan, on Tuesday. Lesley shared a good variety of her own poems that illustrated how well world events can often inspire her writing.
It was interesting to hear that Scots poetry is every bit as acceptable as English verse and Lesley mentioned the well known James McCash Scots Poetry Competition which is run jointly by The Herald and Glasgow University.
Lesley Duncan will be judging our own poetry competition: open theme and maximum of 30 lines. Entries from Erskine Writers' members should be submitted to Kate Gordon by 18th February 2014.
