 It was in 1896 that the last Evergreen was published in Edinburgh’s Old Town by Patrick Geddes and colleagues.

The Word Bank, with the support of Creative Scotland, has launched a new Evergreen (Oct 2014).

The Word Bank recognises the part literature and literary tradition have to play in shaping our communities, both local and national – art creates our sense of the city, and what it means to live in it.
