Jim Mackintosh is a Perthshire based poet who has published  six collections, edited four anthologies and translated one collection from Italian into Scots. He is very active in a variety of poetry projects, both his own and collaborations with a range of musicians and other poets. He is a regular contributor to other publications and often features in literary festivals with a wealth of experience in a range of poetry themed activities such as workshops, poetry walks, and talks on his own work. He also provides support and champions the continued relevance of Hamish Henderson - of whom he has extensively written on - and the legacies of both William Soutar and Hugh Miller, of whom Jim is on The Friends committees of both.
