Jon will be reading from his latest collection, “ A Melody of Sorts”
‘Born among the granite and drumlins of Ireland, Jon Plunkett now lives and writes in the Highlands of Scotland. His work has been widely published and anthologised in poetry and literary journals. In addition to writing, Jon is a multiple poetry slam winner and keen performer, often collaborating with musicians and artists to lift the words from the page and present poetry in new ways. Jon is founder of The Corbenic Poetry Path – a meandering path through beautiful Highland scenery where the words of many contemporary poets have been carved in stone, etched in glass, encased in resin and installed along the way. In 2018 he took the reins of ‘Poetry Scotland.’
There will be an Open Mic session in the second half.
