The results of a poll to find Scotland's favourite George Mackay Brown (1921 - 1996) poem will soon be revealed.
Mackay Brown was born in Stromness in Orkney on 17 October 1921. He lived in the town for most of his life, taking inspiration from the history, nature and people of his home islands. He is regarded as one of Scotland's greatest writers and left a rich legacy of work, including novels, plays and journalism.
To mark 20 years since the poet's death, The Orkney Library and Archive and the George Mackay Brown Fellowship have been holding a public vote to discover a favourite work by the writer. BBC Radio Orkney has recorded readings of shortlisted poems made by figures in the contemporary Scottish writing scene, a selection of which are available to listen to below.
The winning poem will be announced on the evening of 21 November 2016 as part of Book Week Scotland.
