The Scottish Centre for Geopoetics was established in 1995 by Tony McManus and others and is affiliated to the International Institute of Geopoetics founded by Kenneth White in 1989.

The geopoetic project is not one more contribution to the cultural variety show, nor is it a literary school, nor is it concerned with poetry as an art of intimacy. It is a major movement involving the very foundations of human life on earth.” Inaugural text of the International Institute of Geopoetics.

The Scottish Centre for Geopooetics is a network of individuals who share a common interest in developing an understanding of geopoetics and applying it creatively in their lives. We organise talks, discussions, day and weekend events and courses, including field work in interesting places, which are designed to extend our knowledge and experience of geopoetics.

We have members in England, USA, Poland and Sweden as well as throughout Scotland and we welcome new members from all over the world.
