Stewart Smith co-edits special edition of The Drouth

Wire contributor and Elodie Roy guest edit the Scottish literary quarterly

The Wire contributor Stewart Smith has guest co-edited a music-themed issue of Scottish literary quarterly The Drouth. Contributions come from The Wire’s Frances Morgan, in conversation with Claire Biddles about feminist and queer music writing, fandom and publishing, and Jon Dale on Scottish DIY in the post-punk era. Smith himself has written on ancient resonances in Hanna Tuulikki and Drew Mulholland’s recent projects, and there’s a mapping of interwar Glasgow through gramophone record sleeves by co-editor Elodie Roy. “Drouth means thirst, by the way,” Stewart explains.

The Drouth #57 will be available via the website soon.
