Ross McWhinnie


Ross McWhinnie is a Classics graduate and recovering history teacher who now works with with pupils who have significant barriers to learning within the ASN sector. When eighteen years old he read Birthday Letters by Ted Hughes and almost immediately stopped attempting poetry; his thinking being that if he couldn't write like that, then what was the point? Eventually he overcame this, and in 2016 he joined Donny O'Rourke's Barrington Bards, being published in From Glasgow to Saturn, Magma, and several SWF anthologies. During lockdown, he signed up with Kevin P Gilday's Scribbler's Union, and since has performed at several events, including the Great Eastern at Summerhall and Belladrum Festival.
