Heather Reid

Heather's love of poetry began with early exposure to Edward Lear and Marriot Edgar's 'Albert' poems which she can recite with a genuine Lancashire accent. She has been published in New Writing Scotland 25, The Scotsman, Pushing Out the Boat and as winner of The National Galleries of Scotland competition 2007 and runner up in the BBC Wildlife Poet of the Year 2005. During the summer of 2009 one of her poems was displayed (legitimately) in a public convenience on Shetland as part of Jen Hadfield's Bards in the Bog project.
