I was honoured to be one of the judges and the host for 2022's Edwin Morgan Poetry Award. The event took place as part of the Edinburgh Book Festival, 22.08.22.
The Edwin Morgan Poetry Award (EMPA) sits at the core of The Edwin Morgan Trust’s work. The award was conceived by Edwin Morgan with the aim of supporting young Scottish poets to reach new heights. Morgan demonstrated this mission during his lifetime by mentoring and supporting emerging Scottish poets. He generously left one million pounds in his will to continue this mission by establishing the Edwin Morgan Poetry Award as his legacy.
