Rose and Alan are delighted to welcome Max Scratchmann on Monday 22 January. Little did Rose know that when she put out a call for writers to come and chat – whether self-published, or never published, or Stairwell or non-Stairwell – that Max would ask if he could stop by. Yes!
Max is a well-known British writer and illustrator. His poems and short stories have appeared in many anthologies and magazines, and he co-runs the Edinburgh performance poetry company, Poetry Circus.
He is the author of 16 books, including the award-winning autobiography about Scottish jute workers in India, The Last Burrah Sahibs, and the unintentionally controversial account of downshifting in the Scottish islands, Chucking It All. [Rose plans to ask about this!]
Max lives in Edinburgh and is a regular performer at the Festival Fringe as well as having been seen at the Glasgow Comedy Festival, the Imaginate Festival, the Celtic Mystery Festival, the Merchant City Festival, Kelburn Garden Party, the Hidden Door Festival and many more…

So, please join us on Monday, the 22nd, between 1pm and 2pm: and listen again once the show has been archived by Jez and Declan.
