Janet Coats Memorial Prize Giving

Wednesday 23 February, 2022

**Live Event**

Join us as we celebrate this year’s Janet Coats Memorial Prize, an annual poetry award given in remembrance of Janet Coats, who originated from the local J&P Coats thread making family, and was later involved in the establishment of the James Tait Black Prize in honour of her late husband. Janet was also a talented poet, as well as a great philanthropist in education, health and welfare. In this event, we hear from our prize judges: the Tannahill Makar Brian Whittingham, poet and performer Janette Ayachi, and Dr Nicky Melville from the University of Edinburgh, as they read from this year’s shortlist and announce the winners.
