Roseanne Watt is a writer, filmmaker and musician from Shetland. Woven through with the language and imagery of the Shetland landscape and coastline, her poems are a soundscape and a chance to hear them read aloud by the poet is not be missed.
Her dual-language debut collection, Moder Dy, was published by Polygon in May 2019, after receiving the Edwin Morgan Poetry Award for Scottish poets under 30. Moder Dy subsequently received both an Eric Gregory and Somerset Maugham Award in 2020, and was named joint-winner of the Highland Book Prize 2019. Roseanne Watt is one of Scotland’s finest writers and is not to be missed.
