Wednesday 19 January 2011

Everyone at StAnza was delighted to hear today that Liz Lochhead has been named as Scotland’s new National Poet, following in the footsteps of Edwin Morgan who held the post until his death in August 2010.

Liz Lochhead, who is currently Glasgow’s Poet Laureate, has had a long and distinguished career as a poet, playwright and performer and she enjoys immense popular appeal in Scotland and beyond. She has made several appearances at StAnza over the years, most recently in 2008. We offer our warmest congratulations to her.
