Here is a rundown of our contributors:
Rita Bradd, published since 2007 in print and online anthologies, was short-listed for the Herald/McCash prize with The Herrin Trail, which was made into a Filmpoem by Alastair Cook, included on BBC Scotland’s Culture Studio feature on sculpture The Creel Loaders by Gardner Molloy, who carved an extract into stones, also fully published on interpretation boards beside the sculpture at Dunbar, and appeared in several publications including a SmaBuik by Poems-for- All at StAnza 2016.
In 2015 Rita appeared on BBC 3 as a guest on Ian Macmillan’s The Verb, duetting with Ira Lightman, and was part of Book Week Scotland.
Her debut poetry booklet Salt & Soil was published in 2017 which she toured East Lothian libraries with during Scottish Book Trust’s Book Week Scotland. She regularly appears on local radio with her troupe ‘The Three Craws’, performing her series of scripts in Scots/English. Rita is completing her book on her 2013/2014 voyage with 1864 clipper ship City of Adelaide.
Ian Richardson spends a lot of his time listening to, reading, writing and performing poetry…probably in that order. He still enjoys writing bios in the third person and has given up drinking coffee in favour of tea. Ian lives on the East Coast of Scotland where he was inspired to write ‘Little Joe from Kokomo.’ after seeing two pairs of horses riding hard along the waters edge.

Russell Jones is an Edinburgh-based writer and editor. He has published 5 poetry collections and edited 2 poetry anthologies.
Rachel Tonks Hill always wanted to be either a doctor or writer when she grew up. She now has a PhD and has released three novels and desperately hopes this doesn’t mean she has to grow up. Her latest novel is the sci-fi action adventure, Novis, which is basically Beowulf in space with a cast of badass queer ladies. Tonks is also the co-host of the film discussion podcast Celluloid Scrutiny. She lives in Nottingham with her partner and an insufficient number dogs.
