A SHETLAND poet has followed up winning a prestigious national award with a publishing deal.

Roseanne Watt’s first full poetry collection Moder Dy will be published by Polygon in May next year.

The work landed her the Edwin Morgan Poetry Award in August, which came with a £20,000 prize.

Roseanne is a poet, filmmaker and musician from Shetland currently living in Edinburgh.

Polygon poetry editor Edward Crossan said: “I am delighted to include Roseanne in our Polygon New Poets series, her work is both deeply intelligent and outward looking.”
