A new poetry pamphlet by

Roddy Shippin

Curriculum Vitae

Curriculum Vitae is the debut pamphlet by Edinburgh poet Roddy Shippin. The collection covers such themes as family relationships, romantic longing, late-capitalist exploitation and snooker. Some of the poems have previously appeared in other publications such as Aiblins: Scottish Political Poetry, Gutter, Poetry Scotland and Magma. 

Roddy Shippin is an enthusiastic and longstanding member of the Scottish poetry and arts community. He co-ran the infamous monthly Edinburgh night Blind Poetics and was one of the contributors to Poets Against Humanity. He was also poetry editor of the Glasgow-based Valve Journal. He has been a BBC Slam sacrificial poet/judge and has been featured at such nights as Rally & Broad, Loud Poets, Shore Poets and Inky fingers alongside some of the UK's finest writers and performers. 


He has also contributed to various other Scottish arts events - helping to organise and run ACTINIC Festival (photography) in 2015 and the Halfcut student film festival in 2009.
