Gutter 16 writers announced

Gutter 16 has returned from the printers, and is on its way to subscribers and the shops. A celebration of the Auld Alliance, issue 16 contains translations of some brilliant Francophone and Occitan poets, including Vénus Khoury-Ghata and Aurelia Lassaque, into Orcadian, Shetlandic, Scots and English. We have new writing by James Robertson, Doug Johnstone, Liz Lochhead, Shona G MacLean and DM Black, and a fascinating interview with Rachel McCrum.

The caliber of submissions was, as always, stunning, and the editors had a difficult time making the cut. We’re delighted to announce the line up for Gutter 16 as being:
