Poetry and Flash Fiction
by Ruth Gilchrist
Commissions and Residencies
I’ve put together a carefully curated selection of my latest and most influential pieces. Read through the samples below and feel free to get in touch to learn more about me and to discuss any projects you may want to send my way.
I have taken several commissions in the past on a variety of subjects in flash fiction and poetic form.
A recent example is a poem commissioned by The Scottish Poetry LIbrary's ambassador scheme to celebrate the 250th year since the birth of Sir Walter Scott.
The View was written after spending time at Abbotsford, the house of Sir Walter Scott in the Scottish Borders.
If you are interested in commissioning a piece for you and of your passion, please contact me to discuss.
In 2018 I took a writing residency at St.Abbs Art Exhibition. Reading at the opening. Exhibiting pieces including an interactive display. Using the art as prompt for new work, hosting ekphrastic writing sessions during the week.
If you feel your event and community would benefit from a similar approach, please contact me to discuss.
