Edinburgh-based performance poet Anita Govan has a shiny new website! The relaunched site is full to busting with audio, video, news about Anita’s upcoming gigs – such as on Monday 21 March, when she’ll be supporting legendary performer and founder of the Bowery, New York, Bob Holman in Edinburgh at the Voodoo Rooms – press, merchandise and much more. Have a rummage!

YEW is a group for teenagers across the city, offering them the opportunity to hone their writing skills whilst meeting other young folk who share their enthusiasm for what can sometimes be a very solitary pursuit, particularly in the teenage years. Muffins and Musings was funded by the Young Scot Arts Action fund and is the culmination of over a year’s work, with the group being involved at every stage from writing the content, to choosing the title, designing the cover, deciding on the order of pieces and finally performing it on the night.
Among the audience were parents, friends, writers, and representatives from the Scottish Book Trust, Creative Scotland and the Young Scot Arts Action fund. There were quite a few nerves, lots of muffins, and a whole host of excellent reading. The books will be distributed to libraries in the city. Copies are also available from Dorothy Baird [email@example.com]
