The Bridge

In recognition of my reputation in creative writing in relation to places and building, I was invited along with Sam Kelly, Head of the MSC in Creative Writing at Edinburgh Napier University, and the author Keith Grey, to act as judge on a schools writing competition, in which pupils at Inverkeithing and South Queensferry wrote short stories about the Forth Rail Bridge. This event was organised by the City of Edinburgh Council as part of a campaign to declare the bridge a UNESCO world heritage site. The event took place as part of the Edinburgh International Book Festival
