His second collection The Book of Love (2000), a Poetry Book Society Choice, was shortlisted for the T.S. Eliot Prize. Mischief Night: New & Selected Poems (Bloodaxe Books, 2004) was a Poetry Book Society Recommendation. His latest collections are Third Wish Wasted (2009), Terrific Melancholy (2011), Not All Honey (2014), which was shortlisted for the Saltire Society's Scottish Poetry Book of the Year Award, and So Glad I'm Me (2017). His anthology Identity Parade: New British and Irish Poets was published by Bloodaxe Books in 2010. He is a freelance writer, specialising in quizzes and word puzzles, and has represented Scotland twice on BBC Radio 4's Round Britain Quiz. He has held several residencies, including ones with the City of Aberdeen, St Andrews Bay Hotel, and as "poet-in-residence" to the music industry when he co-wrote The Message, a book on poetry and pop music (Poetry Society, 1999). His other books include Vitamin Q: a temple of trivia, lists and curious words (Chambers Harrap, 2004). Born in St Andrews, he lived in Edinburgh for many years before moving to London.

Reviews

This is poetry as an extreme sport, a whole world of shifting ideas with people - dead and alive - dropping in, whispering in your ear, or just walking right through, bold as brass. With such courage, beauty and complexity, it's no surprise that this, Lumsden's tenth collection, was shortlisted title for the 2017 T. S. Eliot Poetry Prize. -- Alison Craig * The Bottle Imp *
Soul-bearing, heartfelt work that demands serious attention... -- Tristram Fane Saunders * The Daily Telegraph [on So Glad I'm Me] *
