The winning pamphlet in the 2015 Callum Macdonald Memorial Award is 'Prodigal' by Jim Carruth, who is the Glasgow Makar (poet laureate). 'A witch among the gooseberries' by Ian McDonough is runner-up.
As the pamphlets' publishers, Mariscat Press receives £800 for the first prize and £400 for second prize.
The author of the winning pamphlet is eligible for a two-week residency in Greece in July as the Michael Marks Poet in Residence at Harvard University's Center for Hellenic Studies.
