range in form and tone, as well as dialect, with some presented in Scots and others in English. Bramwell is a poet, musician and performer from the Black Isle who describes himself as a writer who ‘works between literary genres with a strong sense of rhythm and melody.’
Critique of the Criminal Justice System is the latest book from non‑binary Glasgow based poet, theatre maker, and producer Bibi June Schwithal. As one might infer from the title, this work deals intimately with themes surrounding prison and the ‘justice’ system. More so than that, there are echoes of common themes in Schwithal’s other works here as well: queerness, introspection, and a critique of capitalism. The book attempts, and successfully navigates, a balancing act between a detached distance and raw emotion, ideals and material reality, and the duality of suffering that incarceration brings.
