The launch of Pushing Out the Boat issue 9 took place on Sunday. It is another beautiful issue with varied and interesting artwork, and writing in English, Doric and Scots. It was such a pleasure to hear writers read the work that was written in dialect. I have a poem, “Winter Lights Within” in this issue. It was great to catch up with people: a friend took a snap of me with Gráinne Smith and Graeme Roberts.
Graeme is the Consulting Editor for Pushing Out the Boat; Gráinne is a local playwright, poet, and writer of two important non-fiction books, Anorexia and Bulimia in the Family (Wiley, 2004) and Families, Carers and Professionals (Wiley, 2007). She is the inspiration behind the workingtogethercare.com website.
