Scrievin & Scran: An Evening of Spoken Word

AYR WRITERS’ CLUB members Fiona McFadzean, Carolyn O’Hara and John McCutcheon were part of a 10 poet line-up for this year’s spoken word event at the Harbour Arts Centre Irvine.

This annual event is very popular and was well attended last Friday, January 26th.

Compered by professional actor Steven Duffy, the evening also featured a tribute to Scots poet Sheila Templeton who died recently.

Having once been an Ayr Writers’ Club member, and returning speaker, Sheila had a strong connection to the Club, and it was only fitting that Fiona, who knew her well, should contribute one of Sheila’s poems in her memory.

It was an enjoyable evening full of wit, entertainment and included a lovely tribute to an important poetic voice in Scotland.

And the pies were good too!
