Don’t miss this opportunity to join the second Scottish Makar, Liz Lochhead, for an intimate round table discussion and reading. Lochhead’s centrality to any discussion of Scottish poetry is hard to overstate. Through a storied and trailblazing career, Lochhead worked among a generation of writers who have transformed Scottish literature since the 1970s, through her celebrated theatrical work and now-canonical poetry. Don’t miss this chance to hear the insights and expertise of one of the greats.

Liz Lochhead is a poet, playwright, and the second Scottish Makar.

In A Handsel, the first new poems from Scotland’s second modern Makar since 2016’s Fugitive Colours, the poet celebrates people and those small momentous moments that encapsulate so much of her work. It is human relationships that sit at the heart of these poems; each one is a beautifully realised snapshot that explores the poet’s past, her friendships and revisits favourite characters from earlier collections. This landmark publication collects for the first time the poetry of Liz Lochhead.
