Wigtown's winning Scots language poem recited

An American poet wins this year's Scots language category at Wigtown Book Festival.

Renita Boyle wrote "Sloe Jen" using the analogy of picking autumnal sloe berries as an analogy for heartbreak and mourning a lost love.

BBC Scotland's Giancarlo Rinaldi listened as Renita recited the winning poem in "Scotland's national book town".
