Best Scottish Poems

Since 2004, the Scottish Poetry Library’s annual online anthology Best Scottish Poems has collected the finest poetry written by Scots and poets living north of the border.
In addition to featuring work by established poets (Don Paterson, Liz Lochhead, Kathleen Jamie), Best Scottish Poems showcased early work by emerging talent such as Claire Askew.
Now, over a decade later, broadcaster James Naughtie has put together a ‘best of the best’ list of 20 poems. James will be talking to the SPL’s Colin Waters and explaining his choices, while several of the poets featured read their own work plus a poem they regard as one of Scotland’s best.
Poets reading are Liz Lochhead, JL Williams, Aonghas Macneacail, Jim Carruth, John Purser and Tom Pow.
