Congratulations, Jenny

MakkinCongratulations to Jenny Elliott of The Shed Press, whose pamphlet, Makkin-wires, won the 2016 Callum Macdonald Memorial Award, and to Wayleave Press, runners-up with Elizabeth Burns’ Clay. Particular kudos to Jenny, who wrote, illustrated and published her beautiful pamphlet, about the Shetland tradition of knitting (makkin-wires are knitting needles).

It was a real privilege for me to read in the boardroom at the National Library of Scotland and great to meet the other shortlisted publishers and poets. Jenny’s pamphlet is a very limited edition so if you want one, you’d better move quickly. There’s more information about this year’s award here.
