Burns' night is rapidly approaching and folk around the globe will be celebrating the Bard in style and good cheer, but we at the National Library of Scotland and the Scottish Poetry Library think that we should take a moment to think about the thousands of Scottish poets who won't be toasted this Saturday evening.

Come join us at the National Library of Scotland (George IV Bridge) from noon to celebrate Anybody BUT Burns before you set to your haggis! With the support of the Scottish Poetry Library we will be running a Wikipedia edit-a-thon to share information about Scotland's incredible poetic legacy with millions of Wiki-users across the world.

Book your tickets here: http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/anybody-but-burns-wikipedia-edit-a-thon-tickets-9727436023?utm_campaign=new_eventv2&utm_medium=email&utm_source=eb_email&utm_term=eventurl_text

A free lunch is provided, just let us know if you have any dietary requirements. Bring your laptop and your love of verse and we will bring the rest! If you are a poet yourself, we welcome you to bring along some of your own work to share with us as we celebrate Scottish poetry.

Hope to see you there!
