This anthology is a reflection of 2007 – a year’s worth of creative writing in Orkney – produced during the first GMB writing fellowship.
It captures the breadth of skill and experience amongst writers all over Orkney, and some who visited during the year, from London, Edinburgh and Shetland, to give readings and workshops.
First published in 2008 by The George Mackay Brown Writing Fellowship in association with Orkney Museums and Heritage, Orkney Islands Council.
Compiled and edited by Pamela Beasant.
