Pauline Prior-Pitt lives on the island of North Uist. She has written seven collections of poetry and four pamphlets. North Uist Sea Poems won the Callum MacDonald Award. She regularly performs in literature festivals and poetry events in Scotland and England and her poems have appeared on BBC Radio 3 and 4, and on television.
Pauline's poems about women, alternately funny and poignant, beautifully reflect the preoccupations of women's lives covering birth, death and everything in between. Her latest collection be an angel is a selected works. She also writes poems about North Uist, a land of wind and water and stone, and writes obsessively about the sea and the changing shore.
Professionally trained as an actor, she is an experienced performer, used to any size of audience. She is also happy to discuss her own creative practice. Pauline is the founder of Last Thursdays poetry evenings at Taigh Chearsabhagh Arts Centre where she also runs monthly poetry workshops.
