Our high-flying graduates



BELATED congratulations to Janette Ayachi (guest poet at CultFusion #2) on winning the Saltire Society's Poetry Book of the Year Award 2019 for her collection Hand Over Mouth Music, and even more belatedly to Jay Whittaker (guest poet at CultFusion #4) on winning the same award the previous year with Wristwatch.

Also deserving congratulation are Finola Scott (guest poet at CultFusion #4), who was recently installed as Makar of the Federation of Writers Scotland, and Joy Hendry (guest poet at CultFusion #3 and a loyal supporter since) who was inducted into the Saltire Society's Outstanding Women of Scotland community in October, joining the likes of Nicola Sturgeon, J K Rowling, Annie Lennox, Lesley Riddoch and Jackie Kay. And quite right too!

Surely this proves once and for all that appearing at CultFusion is an unrivalled pathway to fame, fortune and the favour of the Saltire Society?
