Angus Peter Campbell has been selected as the 2016 Gavin Wallace Fellow. Mr Campbell is a poet, novelist, journalist and actor, who writes in both Gaelic and English.
During his appointment, Mr Campbell will explore the theme of 'the recorded memory of Scotland' through the National Library of Scotland's collections.
He said: 'I look forward to the surprises that are in store for me as I delve into the manuscripts, tapes, books, maps, letters, audio and visual and digital recordings which the people of Scotland have left for all of us.'
The 2016 Gavin Wallace Fellowship is hosted by the Library, and provides a writer with time and support to develop their work. Inaugurated by Creative Scotland in 2013, the Fellowship was established in memory of Dr Wallace — Creative Scotland's former head of literature — who committed his entire professional life to helping writers and literature organisations in Scotland.
