Reading and Discussion with Gerry Loose at Crichton Campus.

Reading and Discussion from Gerry Loose

On Wednesday 2 November at 3pm, the University of Glasgow in Dumfries will play host to poet Gerry Loose.  

Gerry Loose is a renowned poet, who describes himself as a ‘slow-moving nomad’, having lived in IrelandSpainMorocco and Scotland.  Gerry’s experimental style examines the ways in which the outside world and the world of written words and verse can combine.  A horticulturalist as well as a writer, his words are as likely to appear in the gardens he designs as they are to appear on the page.  He also likes to experiment with the ways in which his poetry is ‘delivered’, designing pamphlets as ‘games’ which he invites the reader to engage with.  Having collaborated with landscape artists, film makers and playwrights, Gerry’s style is always playful, in possession of a range of international influences, and never less than fully committed.

Appearing with the support of the Scottish Book Trust, Gerry will read from and discuss his work in Room 232, Rutherford-McCowan Building, the Crichton.  The event is entirely free, and open to all interested folk.
