We’re a short story website, so we don’t do poetry as a rule. But we couldn’t resist publishing Ma Bannockburn. It’s a stirring portrayal – in authentic Scots – of the horrors of battle. And it comes from the pen of Roger Ceann Maol Beag, otherwise known as Edinburgh-born poet Roger McKillop, who makes his McStorytellers debut today.
Brendan Gisby is McStoryteller-in-Residence. He's the author of four novels, three biographies and several short story collections.
