In memory of Jim Stewart, 1952-2016
‘Seagate III’, writes editor Andy Jackson in his introduction, ‘ranges across a cast of voices who speak for and about Dundee, in poetic terms at least. This anthology represents the best of contemporary poetry from Dundee and its hinterland. Where Whaleback City (2013, edited by Jackson and Dundee’s Makar W.N Herbert) drew a line under the past – McGonagall and all – and said “this is where Dundee poetry has been”. Seagate III’s job is to say “this is where it is going”.’ We’re very proud to launch Seagate III at the heart of the University, where it all started in 1974, with an afternoon of readings from some of the contributors and the opportunity to raise a glass to our late friend and colleague Jim Stewart, who was so very instrumental in making this publication happen.
