Join the Scottish Islands Group for their next online session on Tuesday 31 May from 7pm. We’ll hear from editor of the Highland literary magazine Northwords Now, Kenny Taylor.

Since its creation in 1991, Northwords Now – and its predecessor Northwords – has been a distinctive and important outlet for writers and artists based in Scotland’s Highlands and Islands. Kenny Taylor is its current editor and will describe both its history and role as a voice based in this area, welcoming both newcomers and more traditional writers to its pages.

Kenny Taylor is a Black-Isle-based writer, naturalist and musician. His published work includes poetry, essays, hundreds of articles for BBC Wildlife and many other magazines, features for National Geographic, scripts for TV, radio and stage and more than ten hardcover and softcover books. Kenny was a co-organiser of the former Black Isle Words literary weekend and has many years of experience as an arts and general editor, including for Northwords Now since 2017.
