We will be celebrating Edwin Morgan’s 100th year in 2020 – 2021, with the centenary commencing on Edwin Morgan’s birthday, April 27, 2020 and continuing until April 2021.


#EdwinMorgan100 will be launched by a Symposium that will be taking place at Glasgow University. A call for papers has been released, please see this page for more information.

We are currently talking to key partners to develop core events and activations that will provide the skeleton of the EM Centenary. There are numerous branches and subjects to access the work of Edwin Morgan (poetry, queerness, translation, music, art, theatre, sci-fi etc) and we are hoping to use the 12 months between April 2020 – 2021 to provide real insight into the many interesting facets of Morgan and his work.  

If you have any questions, comments, ideas or would like some more information about Edwin Morgan and his work, please get in touch with Centenary Co-ordinator Siân McIntyre at  emtmorgan100@gmail.com. We are open to ideas of all shapes and sizes – so please also spread the word about the centenary with people / organisations that may be interested in contributing to this important celebration! 

Siân’s role has been supported by Creative Scotland through an Open Project Fund.
