Gaelic can be viewed as a living language; it is not a relic of a romanticized community of the past. Both living and deceased, Nova Scotia Gaelic poets have added to the store of Gaelic literature in this province, and some of these offer a contemporary perspective, but to date, no complete volume has been created and provided to a wider public audience.

Thus, Famhair: a Nova Scotia Gaelic book of contemporary poetry spanning the cultural landscapes of Gaelic Cape Breton, the eastern Nova Scotia mainland, the Halifax Gaelic community and the broader collective consciousness of Nova Scotians.
