It was a double win for Kirkcaldy at this year's Scottish poetry pamphlet publishing competition.

Both the winning entry and the runner-up in the 2007 Callum Macdonald Memorial Award were produced by Fife-based poets.

Maureen Sangster collected the winner's prize of £500 and the Callum Macdonald Memorial Quaich for her humorous collection, Menopausal Bedtime Rhymes. Akros Publications was runner-up with William Hershaw's Fifty Fife Sonnets. Mr Hershaw himself won the 2003 award.

The prizes were presented at the National Library of Scotland last month. See our press release about the award for more information.
