I enjoyed a lively discussion with the Advanced Higher Literature students in February about getting ideas for writing historical fiction. Their course includes producing several pieces of their own creative writing.
Since the launch of ‘No Safe Anchorage’ I’ve been travelling around Skye and further afield to Inverness, talking to all sorts of different groups and selling copies of the book. I’ve also been a travelling bookseller, taking books, not only to bookshops but to Skye’s Gaelic College, craft shops, post Offices, galleries and petrol stations. My journeys were mostly by car but I also took the ferry over to the island of Raasay, close to Rona where the story begins.
This magazine will be available soon. It will feature articles about
creative people, involved in Design, Art,Craft and Literature who live and work on the Isle of Skye.
