A-Z of Prizes


The annual Callum Macdonald Memorial Award is for the publisher of an outstanding example of pamphlet poetry. The pamphlet or its publisher will have a connection with Scotland or Scottish culture.

Established in 2001 in memory of Callum Macdonald MBE, Scottish literary publisher and founder of Macdonald Publishers and Printers, this award was created to encourage, recognise and reward the publication of poetry in pamphlet form.

In rewarding a publisher, rather than a poet, it is a unique award in Scotland.

The Callum Macdonald Memorial Award is supported by the Michael Marks Charitable Trust. The award is administered by the National Library of Scotland.
