Commonwealth Poets United Commonwealth Poets United is an exchange between 6 Scottish poets and 6 Commonwealth nations poets:

The Scottish Poetry Library's contribution to the cultural programme celebrating the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow is Commonwealth Poets United. It is an international exchange between six Scottish poets and poets from six Commonwealth nations: Canada, India, Jamaica, New Zealand, Nigeria and South Africa. It will establish relationships between artists, organisations and communities throug

h a culturally enriching poetry exchange. While in Scotland our Commonwealth visiting poets will participate in public festivals and events (StAnza, Aye Write), visit schools and get to know their exchange partners a little bit more. Built into their busy schedule will be time to explore Scotland at their own pace, and visit places they have always wanted to visit. Likewise, while visiting their Commonwealth country, the Scottish poets will perform at readings and workshops, visit schools or colleges and have time to investigate and follow their interests.
