William Letford is one of Scotland’s brightest young talents and a wonderfully entertaining reader of his own work - praised by the likes of Liz Lochhead and Jackie Kay. Born in Dundee, he worked for many years as a roofer before taking an M Litt in Creative Writing from Glasgow University. He has travelled to India with Commonwealth Poets United, to Iraq with Reel Festivals, and, with an Edwin Morgan Travel Bursary, to northern Italy. He has also received a New Writing Award from Creative Scotland. He has published two collections (both with Carcanet) - Bevel and Dirt. An exciting new voice on the poetry scene. Not to be missed!
