poetry clips: Niall Campbell 

Every Monday the John Hewitt Society releases two new poetry clips. Click here for more. 

Niall Campbell (Scotland) read for the 2015 John Hewitt International Summer School, alongside Colette Bryce.

Niall received an Eric Gregory Award and a Robert Louis Stevenson Fellowship, both in 2011. His debut collection, Moontide (Bloodaxe, 2014), is indebted to the geography and culture of South Uist in the Western Isles, where he was born and raised. Moontide was a Poetry Book Society Recommendation and was the inaugural winner of the Edwin Morgan Poetry Prize and received the Saltire First Book of the Year. It was also shortlisted for both The Forward and The Aldeburgh prizes for Best First Collection. First Nights, selections from Moontide with new poems, was published in the United States in 2016 as part of the Princeton Series of Contemporary Poets.

His second collection Noctuary (Bloodaxe, 2019) was nominated for the Forward Prize and finds him reflecting on fatherhood, his own childhood in South Uist, and the new chapter of his life in Leeds.

the john hewitt society

The John Hewitt Society provides opportunities for individuals across Northern Ireland to explore issues of difference and identity through literature and creative writing. 

 Inspired by the ideals and ideas of the poet and political writer John Hewitt, The Society was established in 1987 to promote Hewitt’s ethos of utilising literature and the arts as a medium for tackling prejudice, exclusive concepts of identity, and sectarian hostility.
