Poets of the People’s Journal
with Erin Farley & Kirstie Blair
Thursday 19th October @ 19:30
The Dundee-based People’s Journal, a ‘Penny Saturday paper devoted to the interests of the Working Classes’, was one of the most successful and influential papers in Victorian Scotland, and was particularly famous for the quality and variety of the poetry it published.
Join Professor Kirstie Blair and Erin Farley on board HMS Unicorn for an event celebrating the many voices of the poets who wrote in the People’s Journal, bringing to light a vibrant but often overlooked tradition of newspaper poetry which represented the interests, opinions and experiences of working class Scottish people.
