About Duncan Lockerbie


Director of Tapsalteerie, a new poetry publisher based in rural Aberdeenshire. We are currently crowdfunding for our first publication.

Our mission is to publish beautiful books written in Scots, with an initial focus on Doric poetry. We want to show the expressive range that Scots is capable of and propel the language on to new forms.

We want to support those quality Scottish writers who express themselves in English too. We aim to start with poetry pamphlets in Scots and English, then build up to produce full length poetry compilations and fiction across all three languages of Scotland – Scots, English and Gaelic.
