Rab Wilson is one of Scotland's most accomplished poets. His poetry in Scots is distinguished by its oral quality and by its technical assurance. The author of a number of highly praised volumes of poetry, he is also a valued Burns scholar. He has worked with the artist Calum Colvin on a book of responses to Burns and he is the scriever in residence for the National Trust of Scotland based at the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Ayr.
He has appeared at many poetry & literary festivals, and is in demand for Scots language workshops with senior (P5-7) primary school pupils for talks and workshops on Scots language. He is convenor of the Scots Language Centre and speaks on Scots language to a wide age range of audiences. (Photo credit: Robin Gillanders)
