The GMB Fellowship has a variety of publications which include poetry, short stories and memoir by people of all ages and reflect our aim to encourage new writing in all the languages of Orkney.
You will find most of our books on sale in booksellers in Orkney and can order them here on our website – just click on the titles below to find out more. They include anthologies of poems, short stories and non-fiction by Orkney writers and visiting writers. Among their pages you will find writing in English, Scots – including Orcadian and Shetlandic – and Italian.
As well as work by adults, we have published collections of writing and artwork by children and young people throughout Orkney. We also have an introduction to Orkney writers, That Bright Lifting Tide, commissioned by our young writers group, Wirdsmit, and compiled and edited by writer Alison Miller with a foreword by former Scots Makar Liz Lochhead.
Pamphlets of work from the St Magnus Festival Orkney Writers Course directed by Pam Beasant with co-tutor Jen Hadfield can be downloaded free when you click the links below.
All our publications have been designed by graphic designer and illustrator Iain Ashman who lives and works in Orkney.
