The Second Life: Celebrating Edwin Morgan with New Voices

About The Second Life: Celebrating Edwin Morgan with New Voices

Since April 2020, The Edwin Morgan Trust has been celebrating the centenary of one of Scotland’s greatest poets, Edwin Morgan, with an array of online content, and a number of community partnerships and collaborations.

In this event, Edwin Morgan Centenary Project Manager Siân McIntyre showcases three writers and artists who have received grants to develop new work through The Second Life programme, which provides opportunities for new voices to engage with Morgan's life and work.

Vlad Butucea, Sekai Machache and Sasha Saben Callaghan chat with Siân about what it has meant for them to give Morgan’s work a ‘second life’.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Second Life: Celebrating Edwin Morgan with New Voices are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
