Kathleen Jamie  Poet

(in conversation with Alison Miller)

Kathleen Jamie joins us in the final year of her tenure as Scotland’s Makar. Her collections include Black Spiders (1982) and The Queen of Sheba (1995). Her 2004 collection The Tree House revealed an increasing interest in the natural world, and won the Forward Poetry Prize and the Scottish Book of the Year Award. The Overhaul, won the 2012 Costa poetry award.  In 2014, Jamie set herself the task of writing one poem per week. The resulting poems were collected in The Bonniest Companie, winning 2016 Saltire Society Book of the Year award.  Her Selected Poems were published in 2018. The poem ‘Here Lies Our Land’ by Jamie is inscribed on the national monument at Bannockburn.

For the last decade Jamie has also written non-fiction. Her collections of essays Findings, Sightlines and Surfacing are widely regarded as influential works of nature and landscape writing.
