Angus Martin was born in 1952 in Campbeltown and has had 36 books published, including 10 poetry collections. His poetry is rooted in the history and landscape of his native Kintyre. He received a Scottish Arts Council book award for his first collection, The Larch Plantation, in 1990, and was represented by two poems in The Faber Book of Twentieth-Century Poetry. A volume of selected poems, A Night of Islands, appeared in 2016 and was followed this year by West, which will be launched at this event.
