Hi, I'm Gregor Addison and I live in Glasgow, Scotland. I'm a college lecturer in English (for the past 25 years!) and a keen writer of prose and poetry. I've had work published in various places over the years, in both English and Gaelic. Some of my work has appeared in Chapman, New Writing Scotland, The Edinburgh Review, Gairm, Gutter, The Dark Horse, Gath, Cabhsair/Causeway, and Magma. I was published in the Carcanet's Oxford Poets 2013: An Anthology (ed. Iain Galbraith and Robyn Marsack). I've participated in the Clydebuilt Poetry Apprenticeship under the weathered eye of poet and editor Gerry Cambridge. And I've twice been short-listed for the Scottish Book Trust's New Writer's Award.
Clish aims to highlight new Scottish Poetry, with essays on Scottish Literature, and also feuilleton pieces. If you would like to contribute, then drop us a line via the link at the foot of the page.
