Heart of Hawick and The Eildon Tree Magazine welcome poet Wendy Cope to Tower Mill, November 8, 7.30pm.

Since her poetry collection Making Cocoa for Kingsley Amis, Cope has been at the forefront of the British poetry scene. A winner of the Cholmondeley Award in 1987, other publications include Serious Concerns, the Whitbread Poetry Award-shortlisted If I Don’t know, and Cures for Love.

A Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, in 1998 she was listeners’ choice in a BBC Radio 4 poll to succeed Ted Hughes as Poet Laureate. Wendy Cope’s incisive, funny and heart-wrenching verse justifies her National Treasure status. Tickets £12.
