National Poetry Day 2023

Patchwork Poem

As is now customary with the Federation of Writers (Scotland) we are proud to publish our collective contribution to National Poetry Day, 2023 - our Patchwork Poem.


Writing to this year's theme of Refuge, members across the country and further afield contributed poetry for this project. They were once again, curated and edited by former-Makar Andy Jackson to spell-binding effect. 

Our heartfelt thanks to Andy for undertaking this work on our behalf and to each and every writer who contributed.

Watch and hear our former-Makar and Patchwork Poem editor, Andy Jackson,
read this year's curated work at the end of our National Poetry Day Celebration, .
