Jan Sutch Pickard

Poet and storyteller.
I am a member of the collective Ross of Mull Poets (see separate entry), enjoying creative sessions, workshops and performance in pubs and village halls. We have collaborated on two poetry pamphlets: Poetree and Edges, and a CD ‘Mullings’ of readings. As a solo performer I can be found reading my work in the Iona Community Bookshop or telling stories in the Chapter House at the Abbey. I am a Directory member of the Scottish Storytelling Forum. A variety of anthologies include things I have written – poetry, stories and liturgy. My own works include: The Gatherings series of Oystercatcher/GilleBrighde poetry pamphlets and the following titles published by Wild Goose Publications (Glasgow) Out of Iona Between high and low water A pocket full of crumbs Sing but keep on walking.
