GUW Speaker Event: Graham Fulton

Details of another great talk organised by Glasgow University Writers below. This is the last in the current series, so if you haven’t made it along to any of these talks yet, this is your last chance! These events are informal and informative and well worth checking out for the insight they provide on the life of a working writer.


Glasgow University Writers are delighted to announce that Graham Fulton will be coming to chat with us on Thursday 29 March, 5.30-7.30pm. 

 Graham has been writing and performing poetry since he joined Tom Leonard’s Paisley Writers’ Group in 1987. His collections of poems Humouring the Iron Bar Man published by Polgyon was followed by Knights of the Lower Floors. He has appeared in literary publications in the UK and USA and been broadcast on BBC Radio Scotland and Scottish Television. His latest collection of poetry is Open Plan, published by Smokestack Books. You can find out more about Graham at

 This event will be held in the Edwin Morgan Room, No 5 University Gardens. As usual, GUW invite you to bring along something to drink if you like, and will be providing glasses and a few nibbles. If you’d like to attend please email .

 Best wishes

 Glasgow University Writers

“Graham Fulton uses memory, observation, and invention to create a heady linguistic soup that uses poetry to make sense of the world; there’s compassion here, and anger, and a burning desire to illuminate places that don’t often get the poetic torch shone on them. Read and enjoy.”
