Book launch with Pauline Prior-Pitt: Beyond the Bite

We are delighted to launch Pauline Prior-Pitt’s latest collection of poetry, Beyond the Bite, in Taigh Chearsabhagh on Thursday 23rd May.  Please join us in celebrating the launch of this new publication, where you are sure to enjoy Pauline’s performance of her entertaining poems.

In ‘Beyond the Bite’, Pauline considers the position of women, reflects on relationships and friends, examines the dislocation of Covid, takes us to her favourite shores, and shares her experience of loss. As always there is humour and sadness to entertain her readers and audiences.

Pauline Prior-Pitt is a poet living and writing in North Uist. She has published numerous poetry collections, as well as hand-stitched handmade pamphlets. Her collection ‘North Uist Sea Poems’ won the Callum Macdonald Memorial Award.  She regularly performs in literature festivals and poetry events in Scotland and England and her poems have appeared on BBC Radio 3 and 4, and on television. Pauline is one of the Scottish Book Trust’s Live Literature Poets, and the founder of Last Thursdays poetry evenings at Taigh Chearsabhagh, where she also runs monthly writing workshops.
