Niall Campbell's headshot

I am a poet and writer from the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. My poetry has been published both in the UK (with Bloodaxe Books) and in the US (as part of the Princeton Series of Contemporary Poets).

Alongside poetry, I have written for radio and opera. My first libretto, Drought, was performed in 2022 by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. I have also recently provided the lyrics for BBC Radio 3’s Christmas Carol.

I have experience both of readings, panel discussion, workshop-leading and hosting interviews.
