Henry Bell and Joey Simons are the editors of a new collection of poetry celebrating the revolutionary life of the famous Red Clydesider John Maclean (1879 - 1923). The workshop will look at the different ways in which poets and songwriters have responded to Maclean's legacy over the course of a century, and the problems and possibilities of political poetry.
