Prize win for Stewed Rhubarb Press

Cover of 'The glassblower dances'

Stewed Rhubarb Press has won the 2013 Callum Macdonald Memorial Award for 'The glassblower dances' by Rachel McCrum.

This is the first year of entry into the annual pamphlet poetry competition for the fledgling publisher, which was only set up last year.

Publisher James Harding received the winner's cheque for £800 and the Callum Macdonald Quaich at a ceremony in the National Library of Scotland.

As the winning poet, Rachel can look forward to a two-week residency as the Michael Marks Poet in Residence at Harvard University's Center for Hellenic Studies in Greece in July.

'Nest', by Tom Pow and Hugh Bryden, which is published by Roncadora Press, was runner-up.
