My name is William Letford. I live in Stirling and work as a roofer. I have received a New Writer’s Award from the Scottish Book Trust, an SQA Star Award, and an Edwin Morgan travel bursary from the Arts Trust of Scotland. I have performed my poetry in places as varied as Beirut, Berlin, Copenhagen, and Paris. My debut collection Bevel will be published by Carcanet and launched at the Edinburgh Book Festival later this year.
