An ambition achieved

For many, many years, I have been inspired by a poet from Orkney, George Mackay Brown. I first met George Mackay Brown’s words whilst studying Scottish Literature at Aberdeen University, and his stories and poems have woven their way throughout my life ever since. I have written several poems inspired by GMB, and I was astonished when one of my pieces, ‘The Wound and the Gift’, was selected for a new anthology celebrating the centenary of GMB’s birth.

The anthology, entitled ‘Beyond the Swelkie’, is edited by Jim Mackintosh and Paul S Philippou and is available now from the Tippermuir Books website: https://tippermuirbooks.co.uk/?product=beyond-the-swelkie-george-mackay-brown
