Welcome to The Robert Henryson Society

What is the Robert Henryson Society?

The Robert Henryson Society was formed in Dunfermline on 5 November 1993. It exists for anyone interested in the poetry and the life of one of Scotland's greatest poets.

Following the AGM held on 30 September in the Music Institute, Dunfermline (see the AGM page for details) the Society will be changing its structure significantly, to reflect the changes in membership and general purposes.

The sole current office-bearers for are Morna Fleming (secretary) and Lucy Hinnie (treasurer), but we welcome anyone who has ideas or suggestions for how the Society could develop.

In 2014, it was proposed to the membership that the Society should enter into a relationship with Dunfermline Heritage Community Projects, under which aegis the Society would remain as a discrete entity, but would have a more solid footing as part of the cultural heart of Dunfermline. As DHCP has a well-established publication history, the Society expects to benefit from the opportunity to produce new versions of Henryson's poems and general studies of the poet and his times addressed to a generalist audience.

Joining the Robert Henryson Society

We would very much like to hear from anyone who would be interested in joining us, particularly anyone who has an idea that could be developed.

Please use the 'Contact' page to get in touch with the secretary, or post a message on our Facebook or Twitter page.
