Pauline Prior-Pitt trained as an actress and drama teacher and took and advanced degree in Special Needs. North Uist Sea Poems won the Callum Macdonald Award for pamphlet poetry and cellist and composer Catherine Eunson is producing music to accompany the poems. Pauline Prior-Pitt has previously worked with musician Karen Wimhurst, producing four poems to accompany a piece of music for the Leamington Spa Festival. This collaboration was given funding from the Scottish Arts Council and toured Glasgow, Edinburgh and Stirling. She has also appeared on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, Channel 4, Central and Carlton Television.

“Her poems, alternately funny and poignant, and deeply rooted in the life of the Hebridean island she inhabits, beautifully reflect the preoccupations of a woman as she grows older. Covering birth, death and everything in between – including the mysterious relationship between men and crumbs – they are much to be recommended.”  Sharon Blackie, Two Ravens Press.
