People in a Landscape: Poetry from the Far North of Scotland

Join us during Book Week Scotland for an evening of poetry with leading Highlands-based writer George Gunn

The theme of finding my place and making it home provides a rich context within which George will explore, reflect upon and celebrate the rich heritage, history and natural environment of Scotland’s Highlands and Islands.

George Gunn is from Thurso, Caithness. In (2021) he published his 10th book of poems “Chronicles of The First Light” (Drunk Muse Press). His second novel “The Vinegar Wind” will appear in 2023. He has had over 50 plays produced for stage and radio, the latest are “Call Me Mister Bullfinch” (The Royal Lyceum Theatre commission) and “The Fallen Angels of the Moine” (Dogstar Theatre, 2022). He writes for the magazine Bella Caledonia. He is currently the Caithness Makar with Lyth Arts Centre. 

“George Gunn is a poet of energy and lyricism. Fearless.”
