We’re now taking pre-orders for ‘The Darg’, edited by Jim MacKintosh, the only anthology of new poetry being published to mark the centenary of the poet, songwriter and political campaigner Hamish Henderson.

Advance ordering means you will receive your copy to coincide with the launch on August 14th at the Edinburgh International Book Festival. We’ll also number the first 30 copies and list the first 30 orders for a complimentary copy of the next issue of The Poets’ Republic magazine, on publication, this November.

It brings together new work, written in English, Scots and Gaelic, by more than fifty poets in the spirit of Hamish – poet, songwriter, socialist, Fringe festival pioneer, archivist and cultural historian, pre-eminent voice of the Scottish folk music renaissance, anti-Apartheid campaigner, champion of gay rights and equality… He was all these things and more.

In keeping with our principles of keeping prices to a minimum, The Darg has a cover price of £8 (£9 including post and package – UK only; £12 or equivalent – everywhere else).

To order your copy, simply send £9 via PayPal to poetsrepublic@gmail.com

Up the Republic!
