We are only three episodes away from the end of this Ullapool Book Festival special reel of sneak peeks, but we have some amazing voices still left to be heard.

Next on is the multi-talented and newly appointed Edinburgh Makar, poet and playwright Hannah Lavery. She was at the festival presenting her latest collection of poems, Blood Salt Spring. We spoke to her about her work and its influences in social justice, as well as her acclaimed lyrical play, Lament for Sheku Bayoh.
