Christmas Poetry with Hamish Whyte & Candlestick Press

December 4, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Join us for a festive evening of poetry, fireside treats and readings!

Candlestick Press is a favourite at Golden Hare – they publish the Poetry Instead of a Card series, and we’re delighted to launch not one but two new pamphlets for the festive season! Join us, Candlestick Press, editor Hamish Whyte and special guest readers for an evening of mulled wine, mince pies and poetry from Candlestick’s two new Christmas pamphlets: Ten Poems about Robins and Christmas Lights: Ten Poems for Dark Winter Nights.

Hamish Whyte (b. 1947) is a Scottish poet who runs Mariscat Press and has edited numerous anthologies of Scottish poetry, as well as the work of his friend Edwin Morgan. His own poems have appeared in various Scottish magazines and Shoestring Press has published his three full collections, of which the most recent is Things We Never Knew (2016). He is a member of Edinburgh’s Shore Poets.
