Gerrie Fellows's fourth collection, Window for a Small Blue Child (Carcanet, 2007), a sequence of poems about fertility treatment intersecting the language and images of medical technology with those of the body, was shortlisted for the Sundial Scottish Poetry Book of the Year.  New Zealand born, but long resident in Scotland, earlier collections brought together the voices and geographies of those two countries.  In 2008–9 she was the first mentor for Glasgow's Clydebuilt Verse Apprenticeships.
