Open Book 'Push the Boat Out' Participants


Open Book groups write together in community settings across Scotland – from Ullapool to Eyemouth, and from the islands off Shetland to Dumfries and Galloway - with groups running in English, Gaelic, Scots and Arabic. Push the Boat Out has partnered with Open Book to help run workshops and engage participants in not only collaborative multilingual writing, but collaborative multilingual performance. Join us at this Open Book showcase where Open Book participants will present group poems inspired by Edwin Morgan’s poem 'At Eighty' and John Glenday’s poem 'The Great Silence'. In 'At Eighty', Morgan gives us the unforgettable line which we've borrowed for our festival title: 'Push the boat out, compañeros, whatever the sea'. The Open Book writers have certainly done that. Rich in beautiful imagery and feeling, this will be a performance guaranteed to enthuse and inspire.
