Sheila Templeton writes in both Scots and English. She was delighted to be nominated as Scots Writer of the Year in the Scots Language Awards 2020. She’s also won a number of prizes, the latest being the Neil Gunn Adult Poetry Competition 2019 and the James McCash Scots Language Poetry Competition 2020… for the 4th time. She was the Makar of the Federation of Writers Scotland from 2009 to 2010. She is getting through these strange times as best she can, with much help and delight in having become a grannie in 2020. Her most recent poetry collection is Clyack (Red Squirrel Press, 2021).
