Pauline Prior-Pitt

 Her poetry is wry, accessible and achingly funny. There is scarcely a line I don’t identify with.  Maureen Lipman

Pauline Prior-Pitt is a poet and performer who has been living on the Isle of North Uist for the last 24 years. She regularly performs at festivals and literature events in England and Scotland where she attracts large audiences. She has appeared on Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, Pick of the Week and With Great Pleasure, and on Channel 4 and Central Television. She has published seven collections of poetry and four pamphlets: her collection North Uist Sea Poems won the Callum MacDonald Memorial Award for pamphlet poetry in 2006.

Pauline is one of Scotland’s Live Literature Poets, a former Poet Partner for the Scottish Poetry Library, and the founder of ‘Last Thursdays’ poetry evenings at Taigh Chearsabhagh and the Uist Writing Workshop.

Her poems about women, alternately funny and poignant, beautifully reflect their preoccupations and the juggling lives they lead. Pauline writes about the relationships between men and women, family life, the domestic scene, gynaecology, political issues, dresses, the ageing process, and love and death. In her book Storm Biscuits she writes about the landscape of North Uist. Her island poems are deeply rooted in the life of the Hebridean island she inhabits, and take you to the sea and the shores close to her home.

Ticket prices include tea/coffee and cake.
