Event description

Description

Join local poet and author Donny O Rourke in conversation with Woodlands Community Trust's manager Tim Cowen.

Author, or editor, of more than a score of books and CDs, award winning poet, Donny O'Rourke has had overlapping careers in broadcasting, film making, journalism and the academy. On stage and page, his work blends song, storytelling, comedy and reminiscence. He has mentored and inspired all sorts of learners in all sorts of settings: from Yale to jail. Professorships, fellowships and residencies have allowed Donny to teach and perform in many countries but he continues to live contentedly in Barrington Drive , where , with stints away in Cambridge, London and Chicago , he has been gazing at West Princes Street for nearly forty years. He recently turned traitor however by composing poems commissioned for the new health centre, in...Maryhill!

Part of Woodlands Writers, a celebration of the creative talent living in the Woodlands Community. Supported by Scottish Book Trust Literature Live.
