our a-z

This unique collection was written by primary school children during workshops in Kirkwall and Stromness Libraries as part of the GMB writing fellowship in 2007.

With a poem, acrostic or image for every letter of the alphabet, it’s a very particular a-z, reflecting the lives and imaginations of some of Orkney’s youngest writers.

Compiled and edited by Pamela Beasant

First Published in 2008 by The George Mackay Brown Writing Fellowship 
in association with
