We are so excited to welcome Hear Hare Here back after our festival hiatus, with three brilliant poets, our usual fabulous raffle, and a glass of wine to toast the coming autumn.
We are so happy to welcome Juana Adcock, Gerry Cambridge and Rachel Plummer to Golden Hare.
Juana Adcock is a poet and translator working in English and Spanish. Her poems and translations have appeared in publications such as Magma Poetry, Shearsman, Gutter, Glasgow Review of Books, Asymptote and Words Without Borders. Her first book, Manca, explores the anatomy of violence in Mexico and was named by Reforma‘s distinguished critic Sergio González Rodríguez as one of the best poetry books published in 2014.
Gerry Cambridge is a poet, essayist, editor and sometime-harmonica player with substantial interest in print design and typography as well as a background in natural history photography.
His publications include seven poetry collections and several poetry collaborations with schools. The long poem pamphlet ‘blue sky, green grass’ won the Callum Macdonald Memorial Award in 2004.
Since 1994 Cambridge has edited and published The Dark Horse, a transatlantic poetry magazine with an international reputation; his history of the first twenty years of the magazine has recently appeared.
Rachel Plummer was born in London, grew up in East Anglia and Paris, and has spent most of her adult life in Edinburgh, where she lives with her husband and two young children.
