Hello, I’m Hamish MacDonald. As well as writing for stage and publication I like to perform poetry and songs. You can view some of these in the Podium or you can browse in Books and listen to readings from fiction and poetry. From the menu above you can also find out about Plays including Factor 9 which tells the shocking story of the NHS infected blood scandal. Factor 9 toured in Europe and completed a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe. Watch an extract or the full version of the play. Songs From A Jar is a CD of 10 original songs accompanied by some very fine musicians from the north of Scotland.

From September 2015-17 I worked as Scots Scriever with the National Library of Scotland. As part of this writer’s residency I researched the National Library’s collections in Edinburgh in the construction of the Wee Windaes website, set up to raise awareness and understanding of the Scots Language.

I’ll look to keeping matters up to date with forthcoming events in the News section. The idea is to keep this thing lively, entertaining, and political (but never boringly party political) where necessity demands.
