A chance for Gaelic pupils to flex their creative muscles is being offered to both primary and secondary pupils across Highland in the form of a creative writing scheme.
Highland Council’s Gaelic team is leading the initiative called Many Places, Many Stories. The workshops, run by writer Iain Finlay Macleod, will explore what these words mean for the participants.
Mr Macleod said: “I’ve seen a lot of great writing work come out of the Gaelic schools, creative and with a unique perspective, and I’m sure this work will add to that.”
Councillor Alister Mackinnon chairman of Highland Council’s Gaelic strategy and implementation group said: “It’s important for young people to be assisted to think creatively especially when using their Gaelic language skills.
“I wish to take this opportunity to thank Bòrd na Gàidhlig for supporting this Gaelic creative writing initiative.”
