Sold Out Nothing But the Poem on Tom Leonard

Reading Workshop

Tom Leonard was a Scottish poet, writer and critic who explored the relationship between language, class and culture. Ideas around identity ran through his poetry, written in Glaswegian Scots: the words we speak, streets we live in and the way we treat each other. Join Glasgow poet and arts coordinator, Jim Monaghan for a look at Leonard’s work. No experience necessary: everyone welcome and poems are provided.
