Hello world – welcome to my little corner of the Soutar Writers website. You’ll find a modest collection of information about me and maybe even one or two poems.

I’m originally from Manchester but moved to Fife in 1992. I started writing poetry as a serious concern in 2003, and my first collection ‘The Assassination Museum’ was published in March 2010 by Red Squirrel Press.

My poems have been published in a variety of magazines and publications, including Magma, Poetry News, Poetry Scotland, Northwords Now, New Writing Scotland, New Writing Dundee, Riverrun, Eric and others. I have also had several poems selected by the National Galleries of Scotland as part of their ‘Inspired? Get Writing!’ competition. I have a poem appearing in the anthology arising from the national ‘Bugged’ project, and Shetland Council selected a poem for their ‘Bards In The Bog’ project 2010.

I should also say that I’m not AB Jackson, the Glasgow-based prize-winning poet. And he’s not me either.

  1. Hi Andy, I came to this website to read more about you after reading your poem Unelectable in the Prospect Jeremy Corby collection.

    the words ” but human to it’s heart & that could be enough” expresses my own judgement and reaction to Jeremy. Thanks for finding it!
