In 2015 he placed second in the national William Blake Poetry Prize, for his poetry in English and was a runner up in the Wigtown competition for Gaelic poetry. In the same year he was the winner of the Scottish Association of Writers' 'Write Up North' poetry competition. 2016 brought with it a second shortlisting at Wigtown and another for the Douglas Hyde prize for Gaelic poetry at the Strokestown Poetry Festival. Marcas tours Scotland and the north of England regularly and enjoys reading at literary events and festivals, as well as free-lance tutoring work in the Gaelic Language and in Creative Writing, with children and adults, alike. As art critic, he is a regular contributor to Dàna and Cothrom Ùr magazines and he is the Gaelic Editor of one of Scotland's most exciting poetry periodicals, 'Poet's Republic'. As a singer, he is a member of the award-winning Inverness Gaelic Choir and the Gaelic male-vocal ensemble Trosg, with whom he has performed throughout Scotland and at Belladrum, Celtic Connections and Blas festivals. He was named New Gaelic Playwright of the year in 2016 and has completed two full-scale stage plays, 'Tilleadh' and 'Tioradh'. His theatrical debut came in March 2016, with the micro-play 'Diuchdadh', commissioned and curated by Trosg for Eden Court, Inverness.
