Are We In A Book?
In 2019 an Anthology was published by Black Agnes Press, including work from Tyne & Esk members LesleyMay Miller, Tammy Swift-Adams, Cynthia Stephens, Elspeth Brown, Frances Rollinson, Ruth Gilchrist and former Creative Writing Fellows Russell Jones and Catherine Simpson.
The publishers worked with the children of Dunbar Primary School to produce tales from their hearts about how it feels to be ten years old and trying not to cry when they fail to score at football.
Inside the cheery red covers, you’ll meet Fatso the Skeleton, the Cat who ate balloons and the Girl who can talk to birds. In addition, there are magic spaces where children can write their very own story or poem.
£5 will get you a collection of funny, exciting and touching writing; a great big £3 of that will go to Barnardo’s Scotland, who protect, support and nurture Scotland’s most vulnerable children.
