Janet Coates Memorial Prize

Friday 17 February, 2023

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: Renfrewshire Makar Shaun Moore and award-winning poet and writer Leyla Josephine, as they read from this year’s shortlist, share some of their own work, and announce the 2023 winners.
