It’s a huge honour to be able to showcase two new prose poems from the pen of Scottish writer and novelist John Herdman. I had the good fortune to be able to interview (with Walter Perrie) John recently about his life and work just before the C-19 lockdown. This interview has since been published by Fras Publications as Conversations with Scottish Writers: No. 8. From John’s isolation in Marchmont, Edinburgh he has begun to write these remarkable short prose pieces and I’m delighted to share two with you now. Here’s a link to John’s website which is well worth visiting as it contains a full bibliography of John’s many and manifold publications over the years.
