, Chair, moved to Glasgow from London in 2003. Previously a writer of short stories (largely unpublished), Derek joined Donny O’Rourke’s creative writing class in 2010 and discovered a previously unknown penchant for poetry. He has since been ‘highly recommended’ in the Stirling off the Stanza poetry competition (2011), published in various anthologies and online, and is hoping to find wider publication soon. A regular reader at poetry events around Glasgow, Derek is one of the organisers of Poetry at the Ivory on the south side of the city.

Andrew1Andrew Smith, Director, is from Glasgow, by way of Cumbernauld, and has just graduated with an MA Scottish Language and Literature from the University of Glasgow. His main interest is in Scottish comic book writers, and how Scotland is represented in the medium of comics (ask him about what happened when the X-Men went to Stornoway) but he also has an interest in how historical Scottish figures are remembered in the present day, and how we came to remember them that way.
