19 March 2020 Gig – Dunfermline – NOW CANCELLED


After considering the current state of affairs and public concern over Covid-19, the Fife Writes Organising Team have decided to cancel all upcoming events until further notice. We do hope you understand our decision and we apologise for any inconvenience caused. We hope to restart our events as soon as the coronavirus scare has settled and its infectious impact is long forgotten.

Stay safe and well, kind regards, the Organising Team


Kevin Cadwallender

Kevin is a poet, writer and publisher who lives in Dunfermline. He has had a lot of books published and has published a lot of books. His picture is nothing like him as it was taken when he was older. He hates biogs and blurb. Google him.

Oisín Breen

Oisín is a 34 year-old poet, part time academic in narratological complexity, and a financial journalist. Dublin born and bred, he spent the last decade living in Edinburgh, and has lived in, among other places, Damascus, and Prague. His debut collection, ‘Flowers, all sorts in blossom, figs, berries, and fruits, forgotten’ is released Mar. 29 by Hybrid press in Edinburgh – see – hybriddreich.co.uk. He had a number of poems published in his early twenties mostly in online magazines, before taking time out to hone his craft.

His book launches in the Leith Depot in Edinburgh, on Mar. 29 at 7.30 p.m. He is primarily a proponent of long-form style-orientated poetry infused with the philosophical, and with a distinct nod to some of the avant garde.

Haystack Monolith

Haystack Monolith is the new solo project from Mark of St. Kilda Mailboat. With his modest nylon strung guitar and occasional electronics, he hatches myths, sagas and fanciful tales.
DELICIOUSLY SURREAL and totally committed to opening small oddly shaped doors, shining lights under damp boulders and looking up in to the rain. The future is glorious! His music is here – https://haystackmonolith.bandcamp.com/
