‘His poems are full of ocular passion.’ Poetry Review
MacGillivray is the Highland name of writer and artist K M Norrie. MacGillivray’s first work, The Last Wolf of Scotland, was written during a Kluge fellowship on Shetland, Orkney and in the Highlands and influenced by time spent with Navajo and Hopi people. The Nine of Diamonds: Surroial Mordantless (Bloodaxe, 2016) is MacGillivray’s second book.
‘Luscious, generous and always terrifyingly wise, MacGillivray’s unique poetic intelligence has crafted a work we have all been secretly waiting for.’ Brian Catling
MacGillivray has recorded six albums and her music has appeared on film soundtracks and regularly on the BBC. She will be playing Gaelic experimental music as part of the event.
