Borders-based poet and publisher Leonard McDermid has won the 2018 Callum Macdonald Memorial Award for his poetry pamphlet 'Landway'.
In a ceremony at the National Library of Scotland, Leonard received the winner's Quaich (drinking cup) and a cheque for £1,500.
He is also eligible for a two-week residency as the Michael Marks Poet-in-Residence at the Harvard Centre for Hellenic Studies in Greece in July.
Second place in this year's competition, and a cheque for £600, went to QuemPress and Brittonie Fletcher for her pamphlet 'Curriculum Vitae'.
This is Leonard's second win in the poetry pamphlet publishing competition held annually at the Library. He took top prize in 2010 with the pamphlet 'And For That Minute' (Stichill Marigold Press).
The Callum Macdonald Memorial Award now draws to a close after 17 years. Set up in 2001 in memory of literary publisher Callum Macdonald MBE, it has been supported by the Michael Marks Charitable Trust and administered by the National Library of Scotland.
