What is The Grammarsow?

The Grammarsow is a trans-local project bringing Scottish poets and poetry to Cornwall. ‘Grammarsow’ (or ‘grammersow’) is the Cornish name for a woodlouse, and features in the poetry of WS Graham. Graham was a Scottish poet who lived and wrote in Cornwall. 2018 is the poet’s Centenary year and the inaugural year of The Grammarsow. The project uses Graham’s geographic arc as a bridge between communities, bringing Scottish poets to Cornwall in Graham’s footsteps. The Grammarsow heeds the poet’s call to TTBB (Try To Be Better).
