RSE Fellow Appointed as Scots Makar

Posted 15/03/2016

The RSE would like to offer its congratulations to Jackie Kay, one of this year’s new Fellows, on her appointment as Scotland’s Makar, the National Poet for Scotland.  She is taking over this role from Liz Lochhead, who was elected an Honorary Fellow of the RSE in 2014.

The Fellowship of the RSE covers the creative arts as well as physical and life sciences, the professions, business, social sciences and humanities.  The RSE is very pleased to see another RSE Fellow taking on this important role, which celebrates Scotland’s poetry, both current and historic, and the role this plays in Scottish culture.

Further information on the appointment is available here.
