Meet your Makar - on the BBC Blog



First Scottish Makar of modern times was one of my favourites, Edwin Morgan - a scholarly witty man with a wonderful way with words for public and private occasions. Unfortunately he has met his original Maker, so now the Scots have elected a new Makar :: Liz Lochhead (pic).

A small piece about it can be read at http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/thereporters/paulinemclean/2011/01/making_of_the_makar.html
