This is the second episode on our mini-series of conversations with the finalists of the Highland Book Prize 2021 ahead of the awards ceremony on May 26.

This week, we have the pleasure to sit down with Jen Hadfield and talk about her poetry and her latest collection The Stone Age, in which she explores the wild landscape of Shetland and most importantly the consciousness of all living (and not only) things.

Her second book, Nigh-No-Place, won the T.S.Eliot Award in 2008.
