Gerry Loose’s work is often found off the page in botanic gardens and wild landscapes, sometimes seasonal, usually permanent. His most recent poetry collections are that person himself and fault line, as well as the recent prose book An Oakwoods Almanac. His work is all informed by his botanical, ecological and geopolitical background. His awards include a Creative Scotland Award, a Robert Louis Stevenson Fellowship, a Kone Foundation Award and a Hermann Kesten Stipendium. His work has been translated into many languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Slovenian and German. He lives on the Isle of Bute.
