Liz Lochhead has been announced as the winner of the 2015 Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry. Chair of the judging committee, Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, said of the selection of Lochhead, "From the start, she spoke in her own feisty, female voice, mixing old Scots with new Scots... and she did this with a galvanising spirit and vitality that helped to change the landscape of British poetry."
